SPECIES: Accipiter Nisus (lat.) // Sparrowhawk (en.) // Uliu Pasarar (ro.)
My last 3 pictures are with birds in flight. So today when i was undecided what picture should i post I said why i will not continue with the BIF ?
So i decided to post a more recent picture. This bird catch me very unprepared. I had no idea that it was sitting in a tree where i was passing. I only hear something flying over me. I put the camera on the eye and shoot. In the 2 seconds was gone. I first believe that i shoot a Cuckoo, but when i arrived home i saw the huge eyes and the big beak i was aware that is a raptor.
Thanks Parvulescu Lucian (a retired member of TN) for helping me identify this. I was oscillating between Goshawk and Sparrowhawk.

P.S. I use ACR to convert this raw. I usually use DPP to convert my raw files
