I thought it was a dragon gargoyle, until I full sized the photo. Very cool.

I love the balance of this photograph--the light with the dark and the silhouette of the bird! Definitely one of my favorites!

I don't think it's a buzzard. It could be a small hawk, crow or even a raven. It is a bit hard to tell. But with the atmosphere and the season, it makes the model (bird) in your photo so mysterious. =D

It's not a crow or raven, they look very different. It's hard to distuingish between a buzzard and hawk though, because the tail isn't very visible in this pose and neither is the bird's size. I'm glad you liked the model though :) Thanks!

i think it might be a sparrowhawk, because it looks quite short, but whatever, it is an interesting and atmospheric pic.

It wasn't that short, but it has positioned itself a bit oddly in this photo.. Ah well, whatever it was I think it was quite pretty ;) Thank you!

Wow, beautiful. Moments like this are so rare without endless hours of waiting at a known roost. Thank you

I was taking pictures of the foggy forest when it flew by, a bit attention-seeking if you ask me. Especially when he started to pose on that dead tree. I've seen it more often in this particular part of the forest :)

Wow, that's so cool! My mom and I almost drove into this giant black bird once. It flew right out in front of us and was HUGE. We think it was a turkey hawk.

Big birds are awesome to watch up close.. As long as they're not too close of course, like when one smashes onto the front window of your car.

Exactly. It was probably the biggest big I've seen around in the wild. And it was just drifting by so slowly that my mom and I could just take it all in. It was amazing. And incredibly lucky that we weren't going about 2 seconds faster.

I would say it's a buzzard, but that's just me! ^^
Well, anyways, lovely picture! :love:

I thought so as well, but others thought it was a hawk.. It's hard to distinguish on just a silhouette. Thank you! :)
