Been perusing this thread thanks to a suggestion from AW Admin. Some really incredible photos here! In a previous era, I spent a fair amount of time behind the lens. As time permits, I may pop in and share a photo or two.

Yeah, Canon 40D with a 70-200 - I was standing about 5 feet away from the bird cooking some dinner on the grill on my deck at the time when I heard this buzzing. Looked back, there she was! Slowly and quietly kept my distance until in the house then dashed off to get the camera. On my return a minute later she was still there...got about 15-20 shots of her but this was the best
