A great looking image of the very proud looking Kestrel. The colour of the bird looks great against the sky colour. All the detail in the birds feathers can be seen clearly due to the good quality of the image. Nice.

Amazing the sharpness of this image!
I like a lot your POV and close approach to bring us this great and sharp details.
Very good also the pose of the bird and the perpendicular directions marked by the tail and the branch.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

The light in this is really striking. Fantastic detail you've captured and the side-on POV has allowed everything to stay within the DOF. Really nice image.

The light is gorgeous. Excellent POV as well.
Couldn't have asked for a better pose.
Love the look in the eyes, and the warm colors.

This is a very clear shot and the detail on the feathers is sumptuous. The light is awesome and has really brought out the colour, good timing and preparation on you part. I think your point of view is excellent and you've made a great job of nailing the composition with a tight crop and use of the branch to make an interesting diagonal. The glint in the eye is nice. Contrast is really good between light and dark areas helping the bird to stand out off the page. Of course, it is also exposed perfectly :)
Fantastic to have the opportunity to see such amazing birds in the wild, you've very lucky. Great stuff, you have some superb work. Keep it up.
