Meet Bodacia the 20 year old Buzzard, had a day at a raptor centre and decided to have a play with the 5d2 and 16-35L.

Both quite lovely images.

I must ask about your technique here...
Very wide angle, very wide aperture... and yet despite a nearly infinite DOF these appear to be closeups!? How close was the bird in photo #1?

Impressive shots, and I'd love to know more about how you took them.

Is it an UK thing to call hawks buzzards? Looks like a Hawk to me, but what do I know, nice shots either way.

I was very close to the bird and set the focus to the hyperfocal distance of about 4.5ft, I then stood behind the hay bale and shot when the bird was about 6ft away from me.

This is another example of differences between the States and Europe, I was wondering how long it would be for one of our colonial friends to point out that it was a hawk and not a 'buzzard'.

To you guys over the pond, a buzzard is a type of vulture I believe, over here a buzzard will be a species of the genus Buteo, which yes, you guys call hawks over there. There is also the honey buzzard (Pernis apivorus) but that is not a true buzzard.

Over here Buteo species are not referred to as hawks (apart from non european species where we use your names for your birds), we reserve 'hawk' for species such as the sparrowhawk and goshawk (genus Accipiter).

So, Buteo buteo, the common buzzard, is not a hawk. At least not to Europeans.

PS. Great shots Malla.

Thanks! Great information, I had no idea about. Yes, buzzards are commonly referred to describing a vulture. (BTW: The proper name for us is "Revolutionists"!)

Chip, here is some info about buzzards, vultures, hawks, kites, eagles, harriers, etc. and differences in nomenclature "over here" and "over there".

Sorry, it is a beautiful Hawk! Nice shots too!

What lens?


1DX, 400/f2.8 and other Canon gear
The shadow of a feather is one of the goals
