I have often seen these just hanging in the air intently watching the ground for any sign of movement, dinner. I have always been behind the wheel of the car or at work with no access to my camera. So I will have to content myself with this beautiful bird who loved to just sit and pose.
Many thanks for all the C&C's on my previous uploads. Every single one is very much appreciated. Enjoy your weekend, unfortunately I'm working every day this bank holiday, so no chance of getting out with the camera. Just enough time at lunch to do a quick upload. I will try and catch up with comments and votes later.
Steve.

Detail and colour are equally superb. Had a little fun mouseovering V1&2 to get it to turn its head! Works too! A wonderful image.
