Gorgeous pics of a bird I absolutely detest. I wish I could get my head around the revulsion I have for them. They cause so much damage I wish they'd staid in Europe. But your shots are outstanding.

I'm with you Roger, I don't have any experience with this bird. But, I love your shots. The first one is spectacular. It looks like a fireworks shell just exploded around his neck. Very cool.

I just never paid attention to them before.
