+1 are you saying you were patiently waiting?

Thanks Click and Jack.

Jack - the older I get, the less patience I have. The birds know this. I tell them upfront that they have 20 minutes. :)

I was in Vagas a decade ago and there was a curbside bird show.  I asked bird handled how did he prevent the birds pooping during the show.  He said it was 20 minutes, too!

  My African Grey can hardly last 10 minutes and sometimes he doesn't squat! :(

I don't have patience, I'm just too lazy to move.

Was doing some portrait shots on the beach when got buzzed by a pelican.  Using Sony A7RII at the time, fortunately had the metabones adaptor and the EF 135mm f/2.0 and 2x Extender in the bag which cobble together to a useable 270mm f/4 lens.

Not the ideal combination, but you use what you have...

I went on an eagle outing for a couple of days, snapped over 2000 pictures.  Here are a few that I liked :)

Here are some juvenile bald eagles.  All of the photos were taken with a 6DII and 100-400LII.

And finally, this composite. 

It was a lucky fluke: AF caught the eagle with an out of focus moon, and after he flew out of the frame, AF grabbed the moon right behind him and took a couple more shots.  I combined the two so that the moon and the eagle are both in focus :)

Oh sure, humans are smarter than birds. But birds don't have to care about gravity. You never see a bird falling down a flight of stairs.
