Out the corner of my eye...

By NDODS    
This little grumpy chap was captured last Summer whilst visiting Doddington Place. I did managed to capture him in flight but it was from a range which I felt comfortable, i.e. 700 metres or so.

Well; I hope that you all have a great day ahead, for me it shall be spent in the warmth before visiting the RBLI this afternoon.

Regards as always

A superb profile portrait. This is looking into a very clear, calculating eye.

A fine portrait of this magnificent bird, Nathan. A day of sitting in front of the fire for me, it's blowing a gale outside, and forecast to continue for the next 5 days Sad Carol

Excellent close up Nathan. I normally find that by the time I've focused in on a Bird like this, it turns Tail and Flies away. Smile
