I’m ready for my closeup

I dunno why, but Sandy the majestic Sandhill Crane actually approached me and my moderately-big 40-150mm f2.8 Zuiko Zoom with 1.4x Teleconverter…

Which, because it’s Micro Four-Thirds format, gave me a 35mm equivalent length of 420mm…

And here’s what I got.

Did I crop? I can’t remember a bird photo that I didn’t need to crop, but the telephoto brought me close enough to do only minimal cropping —so that you can look into the beautiful reds of his eyes.

You can almost hear Sandy saying “I’m ready for my closeup.”
