[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Common Buzzard measures between 40 and 58 cm (16 and 23 in) in length with a 109–136 cm (43–54 in) wingspan and a body mass of 427–1,364 g (0.94–3.01 lb), making it a medium-sized raptor.[2][3]
This broad-winged raptor has a wide variety of plumages, and in Europe can be confused with the similar Rough-legged Buzzard (Buteo lagopus) and the only distantly related Honey Buzzard (Pernis apivorus), which mimics the Common Buzzard's plumage for a degree of protection from Northern Goshawks[citation needed]. The plumage can vary in Britain from almost pure white to black, but is usually shades of brown, with a pale 'necklace' of feathers.

Buna Joska,
Imaginea este deosebita si are foarte bune detalii si culori.
Am reusit si eu in sfarsit sa surprind cateva cadre cu aceasta specie, foarte sperioasa la noi, din cauza vanatului excesiv.

Hi Szabo - a very difficult capture but done it fantastically. tfs sujoy
