These two shots demonstrate the difference between 'acceptably close' and 'too close'. In the next frame it had departed.

E-M1, 50-200 SWD and EC-14.

Yes I know that feeling... It is hard to get close enough for detailed shots with 300mm in such open terrain without them taking off and landing in a bush or thistle 50 meters away, even when approaching carefully. A 600mm scope comes in handy as they are usually cooperative and easy to spot.
