went for a haircut so grabbed D500, 300 2.8vr w/tc2III at my local Pond/Lake. Nope, nothing but just as I was leaving this Common KF landed nearby. Sun was already below the hill but some indirect light. Handheld

Beautiful image. I have seen one hanging around here but can't get within 75 yards of him. NOW I know what he really looks like up close. Smile

Many thanks to everyone. Surprised at Editor's Choice. Moral, if you only see one bird, get a reasonably good image of the bird Smile .
