Wow!  Stupendous!  You really nailed the raptor.  What is it?  Don't think we have those around here.

Re: Sam's weekly wildlife

LOL, Yeah I got pretty close, but thats' what I do best 

These Black headed Gulls have just arrived and they are trying to establish some kind of territory. They  where so busy yelling on each-other that they didn't notice me, LOL, I guess.

Thx,

I think it is called sparrow hawk. I had a lot of luck actually. I was driving in my car and saw it standing on a pole, so I stopped and took the picture, I was 6m away. It stood there for several minutes.

Looks like a sparrowhawk to me. They visit our garden and decimate the small bird population. They come in like rockets and wham! Great shot!
