Nice! That is an awesome shot. What a cool looking bird. Great sharp details, thanks! Did he mess up and end up in the water, or did he fly away from that?

Good that he was more distracted by that than by you, all the raptors around my area know what truck I drive and I think they send out a signal to take off as soon as I am near! Great shot!
