    This is definitely one of the more interesting bird photos. It has real character.

    Thanks for the comments everybody.

    I find birds to be so difficult, and I was really happy that I managed to get a keeper from this guy.

    PS - It really does pay to bring your camera EVERYWHERE. Even if you're only going into work for 20 minutes on a Saturday.

    That bird has a very sinister look in its eye--I bet you got out of there quick, for fear of getting your eye pecked!

    What focal length was this taken at?

    I agree! I'm reminded of this, although that's just my slightly warped sense of humour...

    This was taken at 300mm, f5.6, 1/60s on my nikon d90. It was hand held, but I was using a giant post to brace myself.

    I was exposed to "The Birds" early in life and have in fact been attacked by a couple of smaller raptors (I'm a veterinarian and was helping care for some birds of prey that were unreleasable). I figured that if the UV filter could protect my glass then it should surely be able to protect my eyes. Having said that... I did back away slowly after I thought I had the shot.
