never been able to get close enough to one of these. The image is a little soft, was at 400mm and handheld. This guy flew into the tree next to me and immediatly flew off once he realized I was there. I wonder what that white dot next to its eye is for. I mistook this for its eye on some of my long distance shots.

They are SUCH a pain to get near! You're not the only one suffering. As for the white dot, I belive the technical name for that is "feathers" (sorry, but you opened yourself up to that). :lol:
