My Partner Jacqui & I were out for a drive today and I saw this little fellow sitting in a tree.
I stopped the car and took a few shots but I wanted to get closer, so I got out of the car and walked towards it.
It just sat there so I got closer then I started to climb up the bank until I was just feet away from it.
He knew I was there and just glanced at me with half shut eyes, I got a few more shots before he flew away. It was an amazing experience to just get so close to this wild bird.
Unfortunately it was taken in very poor light so I had to manipulate the picture just a wee bit so we could get a better look.
well spotted, great that you were able to get so close!
lovely detail, very well captured...
a real treat to be at one with such a beautiful bird lovely shot
Such a great experience, well done.
Lucky you to get so close,great shot,well captured................
Thanks very much for these great comments guys, I couldn't believe I got so close to it. It was an amazing experience and one I will treasure.
It's nice to see them close up but to do it in the wild makes it all the better.
Lucky you Brian to get so close and pleased you took advantage .Great shot. Harry
Thanks Harry I consider myself very luck that this beautiful bird allowed me to get so close.
Guess he knew I wasn't going to harm him.
An experience that everybody should have at least once, it'd make the world a better place.
Great shot to mark your encounter.
Lovely shot, right place right time.
Thanks Patti, Jaff, blacky & les for your comments, every one of them greatly appreciated.
Great shot Brian, what a treat to get so close to a wild one.
Thanks Dave, always great to get a nice comment from a photographer like yourself.
It certainly was a real treat to get so close to this one, an experience I won't forget in a hurry.
