This picture has been taken in july 2019, during a warm morning. As always for wildlife photography I wake up very early in order to arrive in the place before the sunrise, and for not beeing seen from the animals as well. Fortunately the raptor arrived with the right light, not so strong, and it stayed on the perch enough time to allow me to take several pictures in that nice position and a good background. That "guy" is very shy, and with any noise is tends to fly away, but having a camera with an electronic shutter the problem doesn't exist.
A nice note: on the left shoulder there's an ant, visible by enlarging the image.

In order to have also the old gallery ordinates by species, I've added the menu item "Galleries by species" under the item Gallery, that it's still working.
As always leave me a message if you find some issue, or to ask me something.
Finally Sony has revealed its new camera, and never will be the same story. With this new monster Sony has created a new generation of Alpha camera, doing a step further in the mirrorless camera.
As a wildlife photographer having a complete silent shutter capable of shooting 30fps is very fantastic and woould give me the opportunity to capture every single moment of an action, like a bird taking off or a landing on a perch.
But you need to be careful, because its price it's very "professional", and it won't be for everybody, not me at least and not for now, unfortunately.
