I have been very lucky

I took 571 photos yesterday. Some of them are quite nice, some of them are of birds I've never seen before, but this image is easily the most exciting one. I was standing on a cliff, taking photos of this Grey Currawong feeding in the high branches of a tree, when suddenly it decided to fly directly at the camera. Two of the frames are with acceptable sharpness. I'll post the other one some time later. It's such a rare thing for a bird photographer the get this view. Well... the image could probably be much better. It was just sooo unexpected. Currawongs are usually very shy.
