.... a male, looking very inquisitive...
nice work Russ, sharp where it matters and a nice pose. Good presentation as well.
They always do look quite bold don't they, nice image and another bird I've seen very few of this year
Excellent capture appears to have clocked something,nicely composed.
Many thanks, gents - comments much appreciated
- I think he's clocked me!
Can't fault it, Russ...beautifully sharp too.
Great execution Russ,I want one in flight,those wing bars are stunning. Had them hovering round the feeders early last spring but too quick for me. No nits here mate just a stunning shot love the lean and the perch angle
Thanks again guys
- and me Stu - we'll get a nice BIF shot one day.....perhaps!
Nice clean shot Russ
A beauty Russ
Oh we WILL win mate don't worry it's just a matter of keep taking images until the odds are so in our favour they give up and submit out of pity
Well done Russ, I've never seen one in the wild.
Thanks for all responses, guys
- Dexs, I believe the suffer increasingly from a disease spread from pigeons and doves, so are in decline!
