Vielen Dank für eure netten Kommentare, Bea, Torsten, besonders für den Y*, und Manfred! Gestern hatte ich mal wieder Glück. Der Bussard ließ mich relativ nah herankommen, und ich konnte mehrere Fotos machen, bevor es ihm dann doch zu viel wurde, und er davonflog. Es war noch ein 2. Bussard da, der auf einem Strommast saß, aber die Fotos von ihm sind nicht gut geworden. Liebe Grüße, Anne

Hello Anne great capture of this shy bird. I was so lucky to have a similar moment on which I had a wonderful opportunity to take photographs of a buzzard. Mine is much more white!

Warm wishes, Erik

Thank you very much for visiting the buzzard, Erik! I've already visited yours and congratulate you on your wonderful photos. The colours of buzzards may vary a lot.

Thank you very much for your comment, Laci!

Greetings to both of you, Anne

Buena toma, Anne, en españa se conoce como "ratonero", muy bien "cazado". Saludos...Jorge

Thank you very much for your nice comment and the Y*, Karen! I do appreciate it! These birds are very shy and normally don't let you get very close. I got lucky he (or she) let me take this photo from a relatively short distance! Best wishes, Anne

Hello ©junebug,

A good shot. The buzzard is one of my favorite birds.

You have many beautiful pictures on your site!!!

Kind regards, odeveld

Thank you very much, odeveld! Buzzards are hard to capture! They fly away when you get too close! Greetings, Anne
