The common buzzard (Buteo buteo)

For so long i wanted to photograph buzzard...And yesterday i photographed them for a whole day, i spend 12 hours in a hide with them. I got some pictures that i dreamed about for so long. It's a very special feeling to be so close to them (at 5 meters) and they don't even know you are there...

Hahah you're right...maybe shutter sound got his attention but he didnt care at all, just gave me that look and continued his breakfast ;-)

BTW, do you use mechanical or electonic shutter? Judging from the "sound" statement mechanical.

Mainly i use mechanical shutter because silent have problems with rolling shutter and it very obvious error if you shoot fast moving subjects...but if i don't expect any action then i preffer silent shutter ;-)
