I don't see many of these and when I do, they never sit still or let me get close. As is this one, all the ones I've seen tend to perch higher up than lots of other bird types. Shot with 20D 100-400mm @400mm ISO400 f/8.0 !/1600 EC +2/3 HH oh yeah, i forgot to mention i cloned out many branches.

Very nice shot, dennis, and it was a good decision to take out the branches as the overall look is clean and professional. Nice job on this one. I'm sure that you would have liked some color in the background but sometimes it isn't absolutely necessary, and this is one of those times.

Very nice Dennis. I can concurr regarding this bird's liking to perching high up in trees. The only shots I have of one of these he's doing just that.

Thanx all!!! it was an overcast day. I am really not pleased witht he shot because of the background and lack of feather detail. I really don't like cloning out lots of stuff on pictures but this one really needed it!!! thanx again for your nice comments!!!
