Welp, shenanigans caused me to inadvertently remove my original post of these images, so re-upping my "angry" birds from the weekend:

I suspect that most of the people who have seen this photo have no idea just how rare and how special this bird is. . The face that you are able to observe and photograph this species is astounding!

Thanks, Tom. I have posted before about the rarity of the species. I hope and pray they are faring well with all the rain that has been in the area. In recent times they have had a healthy population out at the Attwater's Prairie Chicken NWR but flooding can have an effect, unfortunately. They were very accessible last year but not so much this year.

In case you never saw the video I shot last year. https://www.youtube.co​m/watch?v=t5T1eOkydBY (external link)

And a still.

Outstanding image.

Maybe cropped a bit too close?
