Was driving along a dirt road, came across this guy. Expected him to fly off, so I stopped the car and positioned my camera. To my surprise, he walked up to the car and stopped by my window, whereupon I got a few shots in. Then he walked past and flew away once he had passed the car. Wish they were all that way.

Interesting too see how confiding some birds can be.
