Raptor rapture ........

Birds of prey and Owls, are some of my favourite subjects for photography together with small birds, a reflection of the maximum reach of my 420mm lens combination.

This guy was just floating overhead at the reserve yesterday, sadly blue sky images like this always suffer from the lack of perspective that can be achieved when you can include a tree line or landscape background to the image.

Needs must when the devil drives so I am quite happy to post this image of a Common Buzzard as the detail and focus is, in my opinion, worthy of publication. 


  1. Definitely worth posting. I can never get Buzzards other then up in the sky, they're never helpful

  2. Hi Doug, end of the holiday ? ....... weather was a bit unkind to you .... thank for the comment !
