I was almost certain this little fellow would fly off before I got my tripod and long range lens set up. But happily I was wrong. Keeling still for so long to capture the bridge scene no doubt caused him to see me as no threat. So I stayed on my knees and moved as little as possible to keep the shots coming. Even with my knee pads on, my knees were crying out in pain (my left knee ached so badly I couldn't even stand up when I was done, and fell back to the ground). But I did get a lot of nice shots to help ease the pain.
