From my experience, these fellows are notoriously hard to catch a decent shot of.
The sun was just coming up last week and after inadvertently scaring him away once, I waited for him to come back for his morning meal and managed to get in fairly close without being noticed. I'm pretty happy with the way these turned out all things considered.
I didn't go unnoticed the whole time either. For this next shot I purposely stood up to attract his attention. It worked. He flew off seconds later.
While heading back to the car to go fetch some coffee I noticed the sunrise was coming along nicely as well...
All in all another good morning. Back in school now. Learning and the like.
As usual, if you'd like to view these shots larger you can always try to "view on black" by checking flickr.
