I must thank Younus, the safari driver at Desert Coursers Resort, LRK, for this shot. In his enthusiasm, he got really close to this not-so-shy individual. Although I would've loved a shot from a few feet away, giving me some composition space, I really enjoyed watching this bird for more than 10 minutes from around 15 feet away. An experience to remember!
