    Wild but had been injured, nursed and was being set free. It became quite tolerant of humans for a while and was in no hurry to set off so I could get very close to it. With another such bird, a common buzzard, I could get very close to that too for a while. I still see the buzzard now and although she "calls" I cannot get anywhere near her, which is of course excellent.

    Congrats, beautiful shot. Was this a wild bird, or in captivity?

    The detail in this photo is just excellent - you can practically count the feathers. In my favourites.
