Hello. Thanks for your welcome and commentaries. This is the delivery of prey in flight, a blow of luck, the male to the female of Montagu's Harrier. Thanks, greetings. (excuses by my English)

What an amazing action photo. The birds themselves are so clear and sharp, the action of passing the prey so special to capture. Excellent work.

The moment you freeze is great.
Good focus and colors,

Hi Javier
This is an amazing shot. Please take note that the correct name should read:-
Montagu's harrier - Circus pygargus.
Unfortunately I am fresh out of smileys. However, since it is such brilliant work and because I wanted to assist you with the name, I will have to leave a "Points Tomorrow" promise, but I will return to make good the promise.
I have been knocked down real bad by the flu bug and struggle to concentrate. So, please forgive me for not giving a complete critique.
Good work and TFS.
PS. You can rest assure that next time I will present my usual brand of critique.
