Artist's Description

Canon 60D, Canon 100-400L, 400mm, 1/1600, f8, ISO 1000

Although initially thinking this was a gabar goshawk, on closer inspection it appears to be Ovambo sparrowhawk (Accipiter ovampensis). Captured in Mokala national park, South Africa, this area would roughly coincide with the southernmost extent of this small bird of prey’s home range. Confirmation by a real birder would be great!

After a number of futile attempts to capture a shot of this lovely raptor, I was finally rewarded with a good sighting late in the afternoon. Never waiting around for very long, this was a very hastily grabbed shot that fortunately turned out well.
