I agree. All animals have emotions.

I think that animals do experience embarrassment. At least my cat does. Sometimes they also like the attention and like to do antics.Like the meadow hawks do a headstand.

I thought the last shot was funny. It's like it was caught making a miss and it looked back at us to see if we saw it.

When I did the Nighthawk I had to make adjustments and sacrifices. But you can make out the bird. Glad the driver spotted this owl. She was just as excited

my camera becomes disfunctional if there is not an adequate amount of light.

It was slow moving but being dusk slows down my shutter and makes it grainy

Thank you. Surprised us while we were driving. Had to stop. It made 3 dives before it got too far and getting dusk.
