    I'd like to say that I could have taken a better picture but: A) it is about 10 degrees out and when I saw him fly into the tree I grabbed my NEX and the only tele I have (Leica 90mm Elmar), and didn't bother to grab a coat/gloves/shoes, B) I couldn't see anything when trying to focus, so I used the focus scale on the lens, and C) after 5 shots, and me being about 8-10 feet away, he had enough with my flash and flew to the highest tree he could find.

    I'll have to rehearse my fire drill and practice a little more night photography for next time!
