    Stepped into the kitchen for another cup of coffee and this unfolded right before my eyes, 20' away.
    Watched the whole ordeal, taking 165 shots of what has been a once in a lifetime event for me.
    Had to shoot through the kitchen window glass and the storm window glass but still think I got surprisingly good results.
    After serious culling, I'll set up a slide show on Photobucket and post the link & PW

    Great timing. This one looks very clear for shooting through a window.

    I thought so...and truth be known, it was actually 3 panes of glass:
    A dual pane insulated kitchen window...then 4" away, the storm window

    PS:
    By the time it had hopped up on that pine trunk, I had settled in at the window and started shooting.
    It turned and stared right at me when it heard the shutter, 20' away, through 3 panes of glass !
