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. 

Technical data:

Sony A9 + Sony 100-400mmGM + TC 1,4x + tripod
EXIF: 560mm; 1/4000"; f/8; ISO 2000
