Fantastic image! I absolutely love this type of nature photography. It tells a fascinating story. And this image itself is so rich, sharp, beautiful!
If there is one thing I would do now it would be to post another image above this one....and of the same image, only smaller, wider angled. This way our brains might better experience the difficulty in initially detecting this bird. We have a few members of this family in NA too. The group is called "Goatsuckers", from a very old belief that came from Europe. I also love the old names, such as Old Squaw (for the now Long-tailed Duck).
And the question is, how did you ever see this bird in the first place. At night, in Florida, we used to see them (Chuck-Wills-Widow) flying in the Q-beams. It was a slow up and down dance, sort of like a giant undulating lightning bug.
Thanks for this great image that shows a piece of the fascination that is nature, and that we are losing every day.
