I am new here, and still learning how this wonderful sight works, I will say this, your photo of your spotting is top notch. I am very thrilled I could see this magnificiant bird through the lens of your camera. Be blessed with more and greater captures, I hope you do not mind but I have added you as a friend on this sight. When time permits, I will look at some of your other sightings.
