    Wreathed Hornbill turns the tables

    In Thailand, I was photographing a wreathed hornbill posing helpfully in a tree. After a few minutes, the bird got bored and decided I had been there long enough. It flew down and advanced, I retreated and fell backwards - but being a pro kept shooting. This was the (hardly cropped) result! I think it's the eyebrows that are the scariest. I escaped with the only damage being to my shoes and dignity. (My wife was capturing the scene on video, with great amusement).

    Good picture though... Is that what they call up close and personal?
