Another vote for Excellent

I just need to know how to get within 10 feet of one of these
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.

I didn't manage to get close - it did! Just sat there in a bag hide and it decided to leave the perch and sit on the weir in front of me! Not repeated that to date!

How did you get this shot, Dave? I was told those little fellows could be quite difficult to spot. Well done anyway...
