male – – He remained at 3 meters from me for exactly 22 minutes, calculated on the timing from the first pic to the last!

Il s’est écoulé 22 minutesentre la première et la dernière photo de cet épisode où il est resté là!!Il digérait tranquillement son dernier repas… il n’as pas encore effacé les traces de son “crime”, visibles au coin droit de son bec!

(Accipiter nisus)

An individual quite recognizable by the fine black line in his iris:

Superbes photos, qui prouvent que les oiseaux sont suffisamment intelligents pour reconnaitre une personne qui ne leur veut aucun mal, le fait de se nourrir devant un observateur dénote d’une grande confiance envers “l’intrus” dans son espace vital.
C’est un des indices les plus surs d’acceptation de la part d’un rapace avec le toilettage , une parfaite communion d’esprit sans aucune idée de chasse à la photo ou de recherche de l’évènement, juste un magnifique partage!
