Cool Close Encounters of the Bird Kind

My glider got inspected up close and personal today.

Taken with one of those 808 keychain cameras. Pretty rubbish video, no surprise there, but this was a little surprising...

Oh, I see it now and am embarrassed that I did not see it at first. The colors just blended into the countryside and I just didn't see it.
