'time for bed' said zebadee

I don't want to say too much, I first saw this beauty a couple of years back and fleeting glimpses since, along with lots of non sightings!

Another motor driving past (I doubt they even saw the bird) woke him/her up a bit but quite happy sitting there for some considerable time, looked at me for sometime, turned his/her back on me for sometime, ignored me for sometime, took a look, sat there and ten minutes later decide another post over a ditch across the field might be more suitable... 

so close I have the colour of the eyes!

I still haven't got over the experience!

and I refuse to put a down side to the experience but half and half, white and shade has taught me a valuable lesson.

Geoff. Absolutely fabulous experience and images. One to remain long in the memory and reward for all the effort you devote to your photography.
