A couple from today. D850 and Sigma 500mm f4 sport hand held. The lighting was not ideal, a bit harsh.

2. He had just taken off from the tree he was perched on, I cloned the branches out of the picture. I am not that good:D.

Such a lovely creature!
yes they are, and real small.
These little guys are very skittish. Super job (y).
Thank you, and yes they are, he has been scanning the marshlands for a few days that I was there, had him fly by me a few times, well today around 11 am, I was walking up a small hill, and as I came to the top, there he was perched on a small tree scanning for some lunch, I was about 5-10 yards from him, give or take, fired off a bunch of shots, he eventually took off, but not far, close enough for me to see him and him able to see me.
