This is a good looking raptor and I rarely see it as it just passes by on it´s way north. Today I was lucky. I realised I also saw it yesterday in a treetop, in another location, Kvismaren. But then it was much further away and I did not see it that good.  Maybe it was the same one. :)

  2. Kul att du fick så bra bilder på den!
    Jag tror inte jag har sett någon fjällvråk,
    bara ormvråk.

  10. I don't believe I have ever seen a buzzard like this in the USA before. But, these are great photos. Recently, I have tried shooting birds inflight and that's a tricky job. You did an exceptional job capturing this bird.
