Another photograph from the Welshpool workshop, this is a captive bird (for David Rev2), a female Buzzard posing over a rabbit.

Thanks for all your comments on the high ISO GSW, I found it really helpful.

As always all comments clicks and critiques welcome, thanks for taking a look.

I watched a Buzzard hunting 3 days ago, low level flying, magnificent to watch, no camera with me, awful day with fog and low grey cloud. The Buzzard flew through a huge flock of Fieldfares then disappeared over the hedge....................GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Great capture of this great Bird of Prey..............SmileSmileSmileSmile

I really like this, David. Excellent separation via the narrow dof and great impact provided by the low point of view.

Superbly timed and taken capture, David. Love that aggressively possessive pose against a stunning natural background.
