#1 is terrific. I think it must be busy preening as you aimed your lens at it. Now that it looks it was posing so decently for you, it must have been your timely capture that has made this shot possible. Pete

Pete,

Have noticed their behaviour for many years, but as with most of my bird photos they are basically lucky exposures (Never hurt birds). Knowledge can at times compensate for lack of equipment, I think
