CommentThis was an opportunistic capture of a rare sight seeing a raptor drinking. The early morning light provided optimal shooting conditions and this was my favorite of a number of frames taken. The birds upward head tilt with water drops falling clinched this for me. It is certainly among my best for 2020.
