A Noteable Sprawk

My image of the Sprawk in the garden last week has received a noteable tag on Birdguides which is always pleasing.

The shot was taken laying on my kitchen floor at which point I squeezed the lens through a small opening in the french doors. The bird was resting on it's prey but wasn't spooked by the door opening.
My challenge then was to light the image as it was 7am and the garden was in dark shade. I set the ISO to 2000 which still only gave me a shutter speed of 1/320 but luckily I held still and the bird froze in it's pose enabling me to get a nice sharp image.
