Eurasian Sparrowhawk

Before you all think I do not photograph birds anymore here a bird photo from today. The story behind this photo is incredible (atleast it is for me).

Today we had arround nine adults and juvenile Jay's at our birdhide. Suddenly the smaller birds made a panick sound and the jay's stay and the smaller birds got away. Then there came a Eurasian Sparrowhawk. One of the juvenile jay's got a little to close (read arround 20cm) from the Sparrowhawk and he started to fly behind the Jay. This repeated many times and the Sparrowhawk did not catched one of the Jay's. They where playing with the Sparrowhawk. But the sparrowhawk didn't go away. He stayed more then one hour at our place and we could make many photo's from this great wild bird
