Prince of the Sky
Nicely done close up. I wonder if it's captured during a bird of prey show?
I do like the neutral background. Good posture; I think he's aware he is very fast:-)
What a fantastic shot!! How close were you? Also, what kind of a lens were you using? I want one, whatever it is! Excellent detail and studio-quality background. TFS.

A very good close-up detailing the deadly beak, that superb plummage and alert eyes.
The bird is placed perfectly in frame for best composition.

A very fine end to the drought, Chris. Great detail and in-your-face point of view. It feels like this one's in the room with us. The composition is perfect, excellent DOF control, informative note.

This is an excellent portrait. How can you get so close? Superb colours and sharpness with a fantastic OOF BG. Great POV, pose and composition.
One of my favourite birds in great quality!

Wonderful picture of an amazing bird. I like its expressive pose and glance, excellent impressive framing and composition of the image, terrific details and exactness of the colours. I also like fine colourful BG which decorates the image of a nice bird perfectly. Well done and kind regards.
