What a fantastic portrait of this Red-tailed Hawk. Amazing sharpness and details in very beautiful natural colours. Splendid clarity in the eye. Excellent DOF and choice of composition.

I'm not sure how to whistle in cyber talk, but I'm whistling here. This is an absolutely perfect portrait, but after seeing some of your shots of your beautiful family, I know what your capable of. Fantastic work ManYee.

Wonderful portrait of this bird of prey captured from good POV with great sharp details. I also like colours and OOF BG. Well done!

Razor sharp, plenty of details, very good pov and dof, well blurred bg to emphasize the subject and very good composition!
Colors are, also, great!

Long time! This is a really good portrait shot of the eagle. Very good resolution, sharpness and detail. Good focus and DOF. What a pity about the light, but one has to take the picture where you find them, so well done.

It's a very nice portrait of the raptor. You managed
to capture really nice detail throughout. The eye is
very attractive especially with the catchlight. I would
really like to spend more time photographing birds of
prey, seems everytime I try theres few around, but
that doesn't mean I'll quit. I'll just admire yours in

Thank you for that picture of the Red-tailed hawk.
The composition is very good with a perfect positioning of the bird in the frame and a good occupation of the space.
The point of view is excellent. We can appreciate the eye, the glance and the beak of the hawk.
The sharpness is excellent : The feathers and wings of the hawk are perfectly rendered.
The depth of field is good and the background is perfectly well adapted to the subject.
The colours and contrast are natural.
Nonestly, I appreciate more that photo than the following regarding another point of view of the same hawk (on the second view, it would have been better to have a voew on the two eyes).
Thank you for the sharing. See you soon on trek nature for other pictures.
All the best.

A wonderful close portrait of a Red-tailed Hawk. The turned head pose was taken from just the right POV with superb sharpness, lighting and colours against a suitable BG.
Even though such a fine head portrait is unlikely to be taken in the wild this is a joy to view for the details.
Thanks and have a good week,
