You must have bribed him with something for him to let you that close. Nicely captured.

Nah, no bribing was used. There was 3 males and 1 female in the area, and 4 of us.

This university must see thousands each day, easily. They're just used to people.

up close and personal, great shot, they make great watchdogs, they squawk generally when a person or other gets to close. thanks for the view. Bob
