    You aren't able to get these with a handheld 16-35 very often.

    Nice shot Bud. Great lighting - was the sun at your back, or is there a bit of flash there for fill - it's quite interesting!

    Great opportunity Bud, and you took it.
    Strong shot. The eye has the catchlight that suggests flash, but the shadows in background place the sun top left, possibly close enough to show the same position. I'm going for touch of fill flash as the shadows on the BCNH aren't strong enough for full flash.

    Nicely done Bud. He really was tolerant of you. I am betting no flash. either way, great image and absolutely not something you can manage on a regular basis. Way to make great use of the opportunity.

    Thanks all. No flash - early morning sun in the right spot for a change.

    I am jealous Bud, great capture. That bird has been my nemesis so far... still trying to catch one as good as yours.

    I really like that distant landscape that you managed to place to good effect.

    Great shot.
