Thanks Tony! only 20 yards from the Interstate offramp when I took these. They have adapted to the noise and don't freak out when you get within 30 or 40 yards when they are hunting.

Shapes/shadows on the neck in the first photo are fascinating.

It is like each vertebrae leaves a distinct boundary in the neck. I like watching them fish though. They are much more successful on a per strike basis than most birds of prey going after animals in the fields or woods.
