SparrowHawk

By OAKEY
Managed to get out with the camera, so i went back to the wood were the Green woodpeckers are, no Woody's but this scruffy chap thought he'd try out there perch, he'd been bathing and was drying out in the sun, but unfortunatley he'd clocked me after a few seconds but i did manage a few shots, the blurring in the bottom left corner is a buddlier bush, wern't sure wether to crop it out, but i wanted the natural capture.

Thank you all for your time viewing and c/c on my last upload its really appreciated.

The detail you have recorded in this shot, Shaun, is so good, and how well the bird stands away from the b/g.......very nice work indeed.

The blurring in the bottom left corner gives a little depth and doesnt distract too much from the very sharp eyes of the bird and the overall composition. Very nice capture Shaun well done m8.

ooooh just noticed I'm your 50th Wink
