Close Encounter

Tried to photograph this guy from about 75 feet. Only problem was that he decided to fly to me and land in a tree less than 20 feet away. So there I was stuck on the burm with my tripod and the 600mm at close to minimum focusing distance. In retrospect I suppose I could have done a photo merge in Photoshop to get the whole bird in the picture. Still some nice detail though. Please left click to enjoy a bigger image.
