Just about ready for release, this tawny frogmouth eyes me with an all too familiar stare. Lit with the slave flash to the side of the bird.

    I have never seen a Tawny that colour, they are usually more grey, but this one also looks like more of a chick. Anyway, great scene (especially with the focus straight on and the side flash lighting) as they are hard to spot birds.

    Beautifully lit, makes the bird and the image very mysterious, especially to me, who hasn't seen one yet in real life. I love how much I can learn from your site about my new home. Thanks.

    Wow, that's a really nice thing to say, thanks Peter. And Rob, I am spoilt - I have never seen one in the wild - but doing volunteer work at Kanyana gives me wildlife photo opportunities I used to dream about.
