I never used one of those. But be careful. I once had to handle a great horned one (with a broken wing). They are called flying tigers for a reason.

Wonderful shot. At least as amazing you discovered it in the first place. I think I would have missed him even right in front of me.

Actually, she's a very public bird - in the entrance to the parking lot of a busy marina.

Cool shot!

Personally I'd crop off the grossly overexposed sky at left and top left, which I find distracting and keeping the eye away from the great subject - but that's just me

Thanks for sharing

Plenty of time to think about cropping should I want to make a print antoin - or I could adjust the exposure on the sky.

Lovely capture, but she definitely needs her morning coffee.
