Preening and Posing (Seven Photographs)

I would never have seen this bird but for a fellow photographer calling me over. At first it preened and then it posed. The light was great, almost a spotlight, though it shifted over time. The long white feathers that drape down its back indicate that the bird is is ready to breed. A very cooperative bird not that far off the path. The sharing of locations and pointers has helped me and I have done the same for others. It never hurts to ask, strangers approach me all the time asking questions about the location and animals and not just about what I am shooting.
