The Buzzard (buteo buteo)
One of the most common and widespread of the birds of prey in this country the Buzzard is a great soaring bird and can often be seen circling around potential prey sites looking for a kill.
A magnificent bird that is a delight to see.
Very appreciative thanks for all the c/c's awarded to the Woodpecker and particular thanks to Adrian (topcat) for his UA.

May I take this opportunity to wish that all members of EPZ will enjoy a Peaceful and Happy Christmas and a very prosperous 2014.
Thanks for all your support in the year past.

Top Drawer Ron, my friend! Absolutely first class image. I just love watching these birds - my one wish is to get one in a dead tree but no luck so far. Excellent presentation too - but that goes without saying for your images always excellent!! Have a great time with your family, & thank YOU for your support. Lou x

A very fine shot with the bird, so well placed within the frame with a good amount of room for it to stare into.
Nicely separated from the b/g with the widish aperture, Ron.
And a merry Christmas to you also, and with my best wishes for 2014.

A bit different from what Texans talk about when they say buzzards Smile, which are really vultures/condors. Beautiful shot.

Happy Holidays.

Merry Christmas
