He really is a beauty. I like the shot with him looking straight at the camera.

Stunning!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

How this bird can be so calm by looking to the camera, the photographer had to be very quiet himself :)
Brilliant work with this species.

Great shots!

Quite a accomplishment just spotting this brilliantly camouflaged bird. And to get pictures too? Congratulations Piotr!

Lowell said...

That is the most attractive buzzard I've ever seen. Ours are black, with either black or red heads. This looks more like what we'd call a hawk.

Great shots, Piotr!

Hi - splendid picture. When I was a kid in the UK these were still a rare bird - now they are much more common. Something’s do change for the better!
