Chance encounter.


I was able to approach closely; it was not yet warmed by the morning sun.

I'm glad you returned home safe and sound to be able to report back! Whew!! Was it a close one?

Careful! I've heard they bite.

Karen, K&V, Thanks. I didn't take chances--stayed downwind, and avoided eye contact.

Great shot! I like the green edging on this one. Must be in its breeding plumage.
