Very nice photo. I always wondered about the difference between a Grey and a Blue. I know the blues like to fish.

I don't think Ive ever taken a photo that showes feathers as well as you did.

Thanks very much. I think they're the same. Just like the European Brown Bear and the American Grisly Bear are the same :)

Those long feathers on the neck... are they like guard-hairs?

I have no idea what purpose they serve. Perhaps some kind of decoration to attract the females. They are known for performing some very elegant dancing in the courting season :D

I take that as a complement ;) But I'm quite aware that the big birds are much easier to shoot than the small ones. I suppose I'll need something like this: [link]

;) Of course it was!

That's a nice one. I have a regular blue pup tent and it works well if there is food nearby.
