[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of the few times that I have been able to get close enough to a stationary Buzzard to get a decent photograph. I was pleased to get this one.
Camera:- Sorry but apart from the camera being a Canon 10D and the lens my 600mm f4 IS with a remote shutter cord, I have lost the other details.

Excellent detail on the bird itself. Nice work.


Beautifull image of this bird of prey Peter.
The soft color tones and details in the feathers of the bird are wonderful.

Hi Peter,
This one excellent picture of this beautiful buzzard.
Very good composition and pov with perfect sharpness and details. A nice bonus is the wind in his feathers.
TFS Paula
PS I read your reply and I am looking forward to the picture of your hide.
Your information must help me a lot to make one myself (or rather let my friend make on for me).
Thanks again.

HI Peter,
Very beautiful one...
I like it very much...
Great isolation through blurred fore- and background; both greenish; makes it less distracting...
Pose is wonderful...
A winner!

Hi Peter,
Good bird and very well captured picture!
