The concentration of Birds of Prey amazes me but if your hungry then you need to, 100%. My memory has deserted me and I can't remember this guy's ID, so please, if you know, refresh my brain cells.
Off out soon, fingers crossed the weather holds, so I will catch you all later.
Enjoy today and the bank holiday tomorrow.
Steve.

you could very well crop down to the top of the head removing b/g and have a winning picture, love the detail and the crop you have decided upon but try my idea you might be surprisedWink

I would prefer to see a little more of the bird before being sure of ID Steve but on present evidence I tend to agree with Terry.
Super portrait however.
