Can see lovely markings when the photo is enlarged. The bird looks as if it's posing on the branch.

Beautiful. It reminds me of the film "Kes". I love to see them hovering.

Nice to see a proper bird photo, a bird that fends for its self by swooping down on other wildlife, no bird tables and bags of fat balls for this bird.

Very good David, how well the bird's plumage merges with the brown leaves, natural camouflage.

When l hover I'm like a gunslinger's hand twitching above my pistol before l draw.
Cold clear eyes focus on what l need to do.
Wyatt Earp moustache and yellow spurs make me out to be a killer.
No one can beat me . I rule here!
