Nice catch! How did you get so close as around here these guys are kind of skidish. Shot at 310mm with a non-crop sensor means pretty close.

My favorite so far. Stunning detail and shapes. Fabulous bokeh background. Don't know what the original capture was like but it might have been cropped a touch too tight on the left.
