Buzzards Soaring

Facebooktwittermail

It was an amazing clear sky early evening so I thought I’d try my luck at capturing the House Martins, my luck was out!

I did see this group of six Buzzards circling on the thermals though. We have a lot of Buzzards where I live, but I have never seen such a large group together.

This shot was taken into the low sun, so converting to Black and White was the plan from the start to get a nice silhouette effect.

Buzzard in the early evening

I was out in the garden giving my new tool a try, yes I’ve finally gone Full Frame with the Nikon D810, and a Buzzard landed on one of the Oak Trees in the field opposite.

Thank you Mr. Buzzard for offering to model whilst I try out the new camera!
