Re: How close?

How close would you estimate you were to the bird when you took that shot?

the curlew isn't that big; I think it was about 2.5 meters. I did go a bit closer but then I was only getting half of the bird and the composition was not as nice. I wanted to get just the head but it was not that tame/stupid and moved on. Curlews defense mechanism is camouflage and staying still (they are nocturnal birds so he was resting/sleeping here)
