When I cycle to work in the morning, I pass a sporting ground near St. Jakob stadion of FC Basel. The area is flanked by forest and a bit further away the river Birs, which makes it an attractive place for birds. I had seen earlier some birds of prey – usually in the morning. This young one was sitting quite close to the path and did not seem to be too much bothered about me taking pictures of it. Two or three times it changed place, but always letting me get quite close.

I had the micro 105mm prime lens with me. I would from now on always take the 200mm lens with me, although it would put an additional burden on my shoulders…
