[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A Common Buzzard. I have re-loaded the picture after enlarging it as requested and moved the Copyright into the frame. We all have to learn you know.
This bird was attempting to drive me out of a field so I presume it had young nearby so I took a couple of pictures and left it in peace. I heard later that it actually attacked a jogger.It is a wild bird and appears to be carrying the chick of another species.

That's much better! A sharp photograph of a buzzard in an unusual flight posture. It seems to be carrying a cockerel chick, suggesting that it's been fed by man? Might I be bold enough to suggest that a little PP work might imrove this photograph even further? See workshop for suggestions.
Best wishes, Nigel.

Hello Peter,
a nice picture of this Buzzard. Great sharpness and beautiful pose. The white is really hard tough and makes the image hard to look at for long time. Just added a small workshop just like Nigel. Regards, Jacob

Hello Peter,
Welcome to TN. I have seen your previous post,it's much better like this. Thanks for reloading.
The POV is very good, I liked the sharpness, focus and details. He has his prey in his talons, I liked that :o)

Great timing, lovely pose of the wings and spread of the feathers! the white background is ubnfortunate but can't be avoided, this is England, after all!
p.s. Nice equipment you have there, did you win the lottery?! :)

Much better we see a lot more detail, how it got the day old chick is slightly worrying, but probably explains why it swooped towards you, it was hopping for more food.
a small point this should realy of been posted as a repost image (RP) done by going to photos manage and clicking on the link next to your image wich says repost and add the improved image which then links the 2 images so they can be compared. Techincally this classes as a double posting which normally be removed but will leave this time due toyour newness here.
TFS yours Robert
