Attack and defence by BogdanBoev Attack and defence by BogdanBoev
Sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus) & Eurasian Jay (Garrulus glandarius)
I have been watching this sparrowhawk attack and practice its hunting skills on the jays for more than two hours. Some of them fought back impressively with acrobatic moves.

Absolutely brilliant photo. Just out of curiosity what camera do you use and what lens I myself use a Nikon D5100 and did you use any touch up.

Great shot.  That's some big prey, but accipiters are feisty.
