    Hypnosis? Some kind of dart with paralyzing venom? Maybe it's stuffed! I have always wanted to capture on of these birds but they always blast off just as I push the shutter release. This is a fine capture

    Nothing wrong with that at all RB. As Michael said, anyone who has tried too shoot one of these without a blind set-up would be extremely happy to get anything remotely as good as this.
    Reality is a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there!
