  54. BOB bonjour qu'il est beau et ta photo est très belle encore
    gros bisous

  55. It can be but identification is easier in general when you see something more than just head :) A look at tail would be helpful.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Gorgeous image, Bob. Around here, our hawks don't come very close to the size of our eagles.. so that would be a factor for our trying to determine a bird's identity... though it might well be different across the pond. In any event, it's a beauty.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Love the detail in the hawk photo, he/she is awesome! Also love the blog header photo.

  58. Oh yes.. Correct.. Beautiful portrait.. ;-)))
