Description

Terribly blurry image and lighting... But you can clearly see the horns-and juvenile stature. Two side by side were nearby for a surprising half hour while we attempted to get closer shots from the forest floor. I always baffles me with large birds how it is almost like they know when you have a good shot lined up to move on!
