Wow! Wonderful capture. Greetings from California, David

Thanks. I must have spent at least twenty hours waiting for this bird to spread his wings in display for long enough to get a photograph. Usually he just sits there with wings folded, swaying slowly, or flashes his wings so quickly that it's impossible to get an unblurred picture in the low light. I finally managed to get him.

Mtthew, I must say that your hard work has finally paid off. I forgot to mention that I give this shot a Best of Panormaio. Regards, David
