Raptors vol.2
Posted By: takis63, 01-08-2016, 10:34 AM

I'm posting some more photos of hawks (common buzzards, buteo buteo) , as they are so common here.

There must be literally hundreds of them around...

Thank you.

Personally besides #1, i really like #2 and that's beacause of that stare, that look in it's eye...

Nice series! N1 is N1! trying to get a photo of them facing you is really tricky, as when they take off they always fly away from you, on the opposite direction! Another tip i can give you is not to wash your clothes in normal detergent but to use a bio or non-uv phosphate free detergent (they use UV reflective substances to make whites "more white", or you will be a glowing blue mass against a dark background) , as i said they can see in the UV spectre as most of birds of prey and some wildlife!
PS: i think in the US you can get this kind of products in hunting stores.
