Buzzard (Buteo buteo)

I didn't do any filming today, because I went to the hospital where my dad is, he is 91 years, and he shows it.
This photo was taken about 2009, I think........................ Anyway, he came and landed 10 metres from me, hence, it was only head that could be photographed.

  19. I am gobsmacked!
    That is a magnificent photo of a magnificent bird.
    I see plenty of buzzards round here but never have I seen one as detailed as this one with the naked eye.
    Astonishingly beautiful.

  22. Really sorry your dad is in hospital, hope he gets better soon.
    What a great photo of the Common buzzard, one of my favourites!!
    I think you must have made a mistake... 100 meters seems quite far for a bird - be it a raptor - to NOT fit into the framing!!
    I do mistakes like this ll the time! ;-)
    Cheers Bob, enjoy your Easter WE!
