CommentI was trundling along a track and slammed on the brakes to come to a stop at some 6 metres from the bird. It remained perched for a little while then took off as I had expected it would. The shot was taken while I was still strapped in the seat of the car. I like the uninterrupted flow from the perch to the bird as it took off.
