This was taken back in July, when I uploaded 2 other shots of this sparrowhawk, but looking back at them, the bg's seemed quite dark, and although natural, rather un appealing.
After recently adding a new bg to a parrakeet image, I decided to do a similar treatment with the sparrowhawk, and this is it.
Thanks for looking.
