AlphabetPhoto: G is for Glare

Sparrowhawk

From my desk, I can look out into the garden. I can see the bird feeders, which are often covered with a variety of little birds. Unsurprisingly, the local sparrowhawks also know about our peanut snack bars. This week, I’ve spotted this fine fellow perched on the same fence post, a few times. From there, he/she can see not only our feeders, but those of our neighbours.

I used my telephoto lens to shoot this photo through our double glazing. The wind was buffeting him relentlessly, to the point where he had to alter his body position desperately just to keep on his perch.

He is turning into such a regular visitor, that I might set my camera up on a tripod and throw the window open. It feels like a challenge.

Linking up with PODCast’s #AlphabetPhoto linky. I love seeing everyone’s choice for each letter. Not too late to join in, if you would like to. My G is for glare. Nothing like the glare of a bird of prey. Nothing.
