Beautiful photo!

Thanks. 

It was a real treat to be able to grab a close up of one, since they're usually so skittish. I studied this one from afar, for a few days, to figure out her favourite tree and branch to fish from, then hid behind a tree with my tripod several times over a period of days, and lucked in after about 45 minutes, on the third try.
