Sparrowhawk.

By bricurtis
An over the shoulder pose .... in the garden.....had its back to me then turned when it heard me .....a quick lucky shot..... BUT I never go into the garden without taking my camera.

Thanks for stopping by.

Subject and it's perch stand out in excellent detail against the OOF b/g, and I do like the 'over the shoulder' pose and gaze.

Love that pose, and also love the curve of the perch and the way it echoes the sparrowhawk's plumage.
