[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photograph is taken in the wild bird refuge in the Gyōtoku green-tract-of-land special preservation area in Ichikawa-shi south, Chiba. It is in the place facing Tokyo Bay here, and carried out preservation development of the part which contains the Imperial Household Agency Niihama wild duck preserve in integrated with Gyōtoku and the Urayasu area known as the habitat of the waterfowl for the nature conservation of a waterfowl or the waterside. There was a hut where the black kite or Northern Goshawk which adjoined the observation place inside the garden. It may be the bird which gets injured, and it is protecting and treating. This black kite was maintaining the dignity on which piercing eyes coerce the circumference keenly.

Hallo Mikio
In spite of the fact that this image was taken in a cage and one can see the netting in the background, I do like it. The almost full framed composition and point of view is great giving the viewer to see all the details of this bird of prey from closeby, and one can even see a picture in each of its eyes too. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Bonjour Mikio,
C'est un très beau portrait mais c'est hélas un animal vivant en captivité.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
