Sparrowhawk

Drama in the backyard

Sometimes I have walked for hours gotten cold, tired, and maybe even a little wet and haven’t even gotten a single satisfying image of wildlife. So when a Eurasian Sparrowhawk landed in the backyard with it’s not cold prey it felt like pay-back. I succeeded to very carefully opening a window only 6-7 meters from the hawk, fitted my camera with the longest lens and began to work with the camera. At 10 AM the light on the north side of the house is not good, the house provides a shadow and it’s was a cloudy day. ISO was up to 1600 and maybe it should have been to 3200. Even as I started to shoot it remained at our compost container, camera noise didn’t seem to disturb it. It was on a mission, getting those bloody feather of and the meat eaten.
