This guy flew over my house late last Saturday afternoon then perched nearby.

Shot with my T3i & 400 5.6 L. Cropped to cut out bright sky background.

That's very close, looks like it's about to scratch your lens!
Great shot.

I would estimate about 75' away and he was up about 25'.

I noticed him from a little further away and quietly/slowly worked my way over to him.
