Hello Jose,
Tac sharp focus and an attractive frontal pose makes this an eye catching image. Your Kestrel seems to be as interested in you as you are of it. Wonderful eye contact and beautiful colors. It's kind of neat the way the area around it's nostrils seems to match the coloring of it's eyes. I like the clean blurred BG and the exposure is right on the money. Well done!!

Hello Jose

With the frontal POV you obtained an impressive glance from this kestrel,
the beautiful green color tones of the background are big part
of the beauty of the photo, TFS
