Goshawk in rain

3rd posting during lockdown. This was taken at a Golden eagle site in Bulgaria run by Wild Echo where Goshawk also visited. The rain was turning to snow and I dropped the shutter speed to 1/50th to help show the rain/snow streaks. Golden eagles usually require long sessions in hides from dark to dark. I was very surprised to find that in Spain this is not the case. There they enter the hides during the day close to the time they expect the eagle to put in a appearance.

Goshawk, Accipiter gentilis, Bulgaria, winter. Canon Eos 1d Mk3. 500mm lens plus 1.4 extender. 1600 iso. 1/50th at f10
