2. I'm amazed at the capture - and

glad to get such a good look at him. Doesn't it look like he is giving a lecture in the last one? These are fantastic!

4. i was watching him for over an hour.

he spent about 1/2 the time on a streetlight and then flew about 20 feet to a tree branch.
he didnt care that i was there at all. he was about 20-30 feet up in the tree and i was right below him. usually they fly off when i stop my car and get out but not this time.
