Excellent !

How did you manage to get so close ?

samkv on January 12, 2010

It's was easy, because he catch some "food" (you can see hi hold it by leg) and don't want to drop it. Hi were sitting on our trope and when we come close hi flown 2-3 meters and sit again on trope until we go out of trope and go around.

Thanks samkv. I see the food and the way he opens his wings to hide it as these birds always do. I do not understand the word "trope" , can you explain please.
