    We are back from our family spring break trip to see mom in Florida. The trip gave me a chance to play with my new Pentax K-1. I took this with it and a 55-300mm zoom lens. I was no closer than 20 feet from the bird. Click to enlarge.

    Wow great detail, you must have steady nerves. I saved it to look at multiple times.

    BTW that bird has a naturally angry appearance.

    Fortune (magazine?) has released their list of the 50 World’s Greatest Leaders. I won’t spoil the fun but before you look think of 5 leaders who you would consider with this criteria; “In business, government, philanthropy and the arts, and all over the globe, these men and women are transforming the world and inspiring others to do the same.” #3 is an easy one but a lady named Bob was not on my radar.
