You nailed that one Duane!
I'm impressed w/the separation you were able to achieve between the background clutter and the bird. Extremely nice.
And the stuff it's got to fly through to get there....jeez! Amazingly nimble on the wing aren't they.

For such a large wingspan yes it's amazing how they manuever through the branches. They are silent as well...I think that's the most amazing thing about watching them do this. I'm very fortunate to be able to witness this so close to home and for so long....I wish more people could witness this as well. :D

Thanks again everyone for the replies. I think this is my first 3 page topic. :mrgreen:
