[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Northern Goshawk is the largest member of the genus Accipiter.[4] It is a raptor with short, broad wings and a long tail, both adaptations to manoeuvring through trees in the forests it lives and nests in. Across most of the species's range, it is blue-grey above and barred grey or white below, but Asian subspecies in particular range from nearly white overall to nearly black above. The juvenile is brown above and barred brown below. Juveniles and adults have a barred tail, with dark brown or black barring. Adults always have a white eye stripe. In North America, juveniles have pale-yellow eyes, and adults develop dark red eyes usually after their second year, although nutrition and genetics may affect eye color as well. In Europe and Asia, juveniles also have pale-yellow eyes, however adults develop orange-colored eyes.

Hi Marci
what a view and what a beautiful light!
just great

Bonjour Marcin,
Il me semble qu'il un peu de profondeur de champ mais le sujet est tout de même bien valorisé par sa formidable opposition sur l'arrière plan.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
