SATURDAY CRITTERS - Sparrowhawk

This is a photograph taken by Danny, a member of my bird class.
It is a image of a Sparrowhawk.



This is Danny who I have to thank for giving me permission to show you his beautiful photograph.  For me it is lovely to have him as part of my bird group as well as being a great photographer.

I am having a little break from my own photographs after all the video work I have just completed but sharing some images that other people have sent to me.  

I am linking this post with SATURDAY CRITTERS.

Many thanks for your visit and also your comments.

  2. Danny looks like he would be a fun person to be with! Look at that yellow eye on the sparrowhawk! Are these hawks small?

  18. Wow that is a great clear up close photo of the hawk. I also had to take a break, it seems that doing the videos is really difficult and tired me out also. I really enjoyed the video of the gardens I watched recently. It is a lot of work so take some time to rest.
