Just after the mornings rain we went on a muddy slippery game count. All of a sudden we saw this flying then it landed right next to the car, i could of reached out and touched it. As you can see the light was perfect and I couldn't of hoped to get a better picture of this species. Hope you like it,

Luke


P.S
Hope the LDW isn't to bad :/
