Hello Harj
This bird sat in a high tree . I was approx 30 m from him along with a
few other photographers . He did not seem to mind at all.
I am assuming it is a he.
He did not move for over 1/2 hour .

Good capture Fred. They are very regal birds, don't take any grief from any other bird. That one looks like he was surveying his kingdom, but why was his feathers so ruffled? Was it windy?

Very well done, indeed, Fred.

These birds have a talent at blending in so that it's very difficult to spot them within the trees.
