[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We found this juvenile jackall buzard inside the boundries of the bush lodge. It seemed distressed and could not fly. We built a cage and fed it chicken and some protien powder for +- 3 weeks. The buzard recovered completely and we set it free again. I am glad to comment that I saw it a week ago just about fully grown and very healthy. The camera used was a Canon A85 and the photo is a crop of a full face one.

A very interesting crop. Does it work? I'm not sure. On the other hand its more interesting than just another full face on view of a raptor. Certainly lots of detail here and the background is a matching colour and suitably blurred. Interesting note.

Super details, Andre! Clarity and sharpness are very nice. The off center portrait works, but it's impact is because it is unusual. It would be nice to compare with the full face one.

I like your crop Andre, the young buzzard is so close to you. I like your story, I am so happy he is all mended and away flying free again.
Very good sharpness and sharp details. Well shown, thank you
