Goshawk
One of a pair which inhabits our local cemetery. They usually spot you long before you've spotted them and glide noiselessly away between the trees; this one stayed put for a minute or so and kept bobbing her head above the small branch to see if I was still there. Kind of reminded me of my three year old daughter, lying on her stomach on the floor with only her head under the bed and believing that she was completely hidden :)

Nicely lit and detailed. It’s a well known fact that if you close your eyes, you can’t be seen. 😉

A great capture, nice work! I envy you being able to see and photograph this species, they’re so much more difficult in Britain.

LOL yeah.... I know just what you mean McHeath. Sometimes birds just aren't very co-operative, are they.

A super picture lad - very well done.
