LOL, I wenrt out to find some whatever they are flies today and spotted this instead. I spent over an hour with him and he was soooooo good for me, posed very nicely and flew to a couple of different spots for me too, though he did spend most of his time in the highest spot (bird's eye view being high up, pardon the pun).

Anyway, I think you will like these, some have just been resized and sharpened and others cropped a little too with a little gamma correction, other than that, no altering.

I was within 6 to 15 feet of him with all of these shots, he seemed tame but is definitely a wild one. I knew we had them in the park but in the four years I've been going to that area, I have never once spotted one before, I was soooooo excited.

Been told it's a Buzzard, taking that as gospel! lol! Hope I see him again soon. He is one beautiful bird.
