These guys are always flying around the local pond. From time to time though, I get lucky and catch one posing. This guy put on a real show. For reference, these guys are a little over 6 inches long from beak to tail. Taken with the D2H / 300mm f2.8 + TC-17EII. Posing: Stretching: Flapping: Well, Hello my Friend: A few more can be seen here: http://flew.smugmug.com/gallery/595513/1/25031525 Thanks for looking.
