A sparrowhawk on the hunt for prey struck a classic superhero pose as it perched on a branch with its wings spread into a makeshift 'cape'. Retired murder detective Ray Cooper, 65, snapped pictures of the hawk looking as if it was auditioning for a role in a Batman movie.

Mr Cooper spent 13 hours across two days in a rented bird hide in a clearing to capture the dramatic shots in Kirkcudbright, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland.
