It just happened to be sitting there and didn't seem afraid of strangers. You know theo ld saying' Just happened to be in the right place at the right time"

Thanks for the remarks.

I was going to ask if you were in flordia, as I've heard the GBH's have gotten used to photographers climbing down their throats there. :lol:

I'm a big fan of these birds, since I started seeing them in my childhood. I'd love to get this close to one, with or without my camera.

Unfortunately, the camera over exposed (probably due to the bright background.) What mode were you in? The feathers on the head are overexposed. Try using the mode which shows the historgram in after-picture display, and it would have pointed this out so you could do it again. (Of course, I say that when I haven't set that Custom fuction on my 10D yet. I keep meaning to... )

Please take more and post them. I never tire of seeing these birds.

I did have the histogram showing but by the time I could make adjustments it had flown away. I think the overexposure was do to the flash. I live in Ohio and was visiting FL.

Here are some chicks.
