This past weekend I was lucky enough to be treated to a five-minute audience with this rather secretive bird which, although I have manged to see a bit in the past, had always been far beyond the reach of my lens.

Clicking these images will bring you to a pBase page where you can see larger, sharper files, EXIF info, etc.

And as always, constructive criticism and critique of images, technique, post processing, etc. is most welcome!

Cheers,
Christopher
