Because I had been after the bird for 5 years. I drove 800 miles round trip to find it. I walk a few miles through some woods in the middle of no-where and the there he was. Looking handsome as he strutted his stuff. My adrenaline was pumping making me shake as I thought I wasn't going to get my shot ! I had spent ages sneaking up on him. What happened next was so funny. After I got a few shots I moved away, he then ran straight at me like a bat out of hell and bit me :rofl: I still have the scar !!!

and thank you ;-)

Really wicked! These guys can be quite shy unless you're approaching a male during the breeding season. :wow:
A true winner for sure!
