_DSC2989d.jpg

I sometimes get pretty close to these fellows.
Even to the point that their wings occasionally hit me.
But I always keep in mind that these awesome hunters have the potential to be dangerous.
They can strike with lightening speed with either their bill or their claws
(best seen in original size)







I'd guess this one takes a size 18 shoe

Nikon D7000
1/1600s f/6.3 at 400.0mm iso400 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

Two great captures! I like the warm light and seemingly pensive pose in the top image. Those claws would definitely make me think twice about getting too close. V.
