The bird is more an African bird. It is here for two month a year and then go back in Africa. But WHAT AN AMAZING BIRD!
Two different male on these pictures
yep, it is “on” I was in the woods last Sunday. I love this time of year. Mist, cold, lovely…..
This spectacle is not to be missed.
ps: the good news is that I was able to get away from my kingfisher hide!!! 🙂 🙂
Sunrise is always magical……
Mist is also spectacular….the atmosphere it create…
Remember, it doesn`t always need to be big in the frame 🙂
lots of chasing ….
Third round on my kingfisher setup…
Few dives shot
This time , I have try to take some under water picture. It is not easy…I need to try something different.
The speed is always incredible. my eyes cannot clock what happening. Only the camera can tell me what`s happening under water. Amazing
Yesterday morning, I was at my woodland hide. I have been feeding there for the last month. I have two sparrowhawk coming. It`s a job to stop them.
I have place, Post, Branch everywhere.
Yesterday I was lucky.
One male came twice.
A bit of a crop, but I like this backlit picture…..
When the sparrowhawk happened to land within 6 metres of you.
Trust me when I say this: you stop breathing and you DO NOT MOVE!!
This one was in front of me for twenty minutes.
I spent three hours at my woodland hide this morning. It was a cracking morning! I could see my breath. I like it when it is cold and sunny….the best. I sat down in my hide and within 5 minutes of been in the hide a sparrowhawk landed in front of me. Shame that the light was not on the perch ….Trust me, you stop breathing when this happens!
First thing sparrowhawk
On the same branch lot`s of other birds….
