The cold season is just around the corner, but although I am far from being a winter person some subjects make those months a little more tolerable. Here is a heated exchange (and an "after the battle" resting pose) from last winter:).

I remember these guys you have shot, can't wait till this years crop! The first one sure does not look good for the one on the ground, those little claws, look pretty menacing. I hope you don't get too cold. lol

Very nice, Daniel; I've seen scores of them already this fall, but getting close is the challenge; you've done well with these.

Great light on these! I never seem to get close, they always fly away when I try.

Remarkable clarity on these, Daniel! I just discovered these guys last winter and am familiar with how hard it is to get close enough for that good of a shot ;)
