This has an incredible (but true) back story. We had stopped to watch a large flock of Snow Buntings straight ahead then a sminute later noticed a Merlin in a tree beside the road a car length ahead. I couldn't shoot across the vehicle from the passenger side so I gently opened the door slightly to grab a few shots. After I was finished I glanced to my right and there was a Snowy staring at me, 20 feet away at eye level. Surprise doesn't come close to my reaction but I didn't want to make a sound for fear it would fly. I took a couple of insurance shots then gently closed the door to grab some more. The bird left after a few minutes. What a sureal experience.
