Hi Pekka. A fine close up of the Young Kestrel . It looks like its hanging on for all its worth. You have good detail and natural colours in the feathers. And thats blue sky one of the few we had this summer. well done TFS.

thanks very much for this :-)))
You got a significantly better shot of this Kestrel than I did, even though I sneaked in a bit closer.
This is razor sharp and full of detail.
Very well done and thanks again! :-)
p.s of course this is into my favs!

Nice to see this shot - not only was it struggling to hold on to the wire, it had Joey stalking it to contend with! ;p
The details have come out well, I like the yellow of the legs. Great exposure and sharpness as always. TFS

Magnificent Kestrel and beautiful picture! I love the pose on the diagonal wire. You captured this Kestrel perfectly with excellent colors and super fine details of the entire bird. The plummage is superb. Beautiful blue sky for a background and a marvelous composition.

I look at these close in's and think of what in the world an I doing? I am always trying something new and different...and at 63, which is apparently not old but I feel it..I guess I could be just as good as you here and get one of these beasts...but I seem to be caught up in the new hi tech society of nature..trying to figure what went wrong and how to correct it... and in that..it is a good thing that great photographers as you are here to capture what is meant to be passed one in quality and genuine concern...so...in other words this is fine...and better than fine as one singer wrote!

A beautiful clear and well focused image of this kestrel.
The colours are vibrant and well saturated.
Excellent positioning in the frame.
The plumage detail shows well.

Very sharp pic of the subject against a clear BG. The contrast between the sky and the the bird make it very catching to the eye and I think your pic is a quality posting.

A really lovey shot of the young Kestrel, perfectly positioned on a diagonal rope across the frame.
The details of his plummage are very well recorded.
Has he seen something of interest on the ground? He looks very curious!
