CommentDespite the "look", this Collared Sparrowhawk was happy to spend 15 minutes consuming its meal, of Spotted Dove, up in a tree. It knew I was there, some 10m away in clear view. I had even left to get a step-ladder fort a clearer view over the lower branches. Whilst the lighting is difficult - south side of the house - there was time to get this "pose". I was extatic to get such a shot let alone seeing the bird in Suburbian Melbourne.
