I spent thursday down at the Hawk conservancy, shooting a mixture of perched and flying birds, and this 'gerkin' was the first to pose for us.
This capture is taken as the bird shook it's feathers, so the blurry feathers are intentional, although the head is still sharp.
All comments welcome, and make the most of the bright weather if you have it, and enjoy your weekend.
