Ok a bit of a crop but this fellow flew right at me then over my head. It was a great moment. Then he did it another 4 times to the point that I couldn't focus. The shot from yesterday shows one of those encounters Wink

Gathered it was a crop from the grain and loss of detail in the birds feathers, not that it matters much as it's still a good capture.....
