Steve, it does have some awesomefeet and talonsdoesn't it. I took one that was focused juston the feet.

Kent....that was myfirst opportunity ever to catch one like that. The few others I have seen were a little far up in the sky.

Thanks for the comments, guys.

Nice shot of a beautiful bird! It would have been outstanding with side light but just to see the bird in the wild has got to be a treat. Congratulations on your capture.

Thanks much, Ron. I agree about the light and really wished at the time for a different angle. I was happy to get what I got though and felt like I found the needle in the haystack.
