    John,

    This would have been a pretty good shot if you could've gotten close.

    Jeez....I'm surprised that he didn't snatch the camera out of your hands. :lol:

    Excellent image.

    Thanks. Bit of a cheat for most 'real' bird photographers, since these birds are captive (due to injury). On the other hand, they offer a great opportunity to get up close and personal :D

    John,

    These aren't cheating....they are just shots that take advantage of the circumstances. 8)

    Take my word for it, you are a real bird photographer. :wink:
