Great flight capture, the intensity of his eyes seeks your attention.

Wow, shooting photos of birds in-flight from the side, while they are moving past you, is difficult enough as it is, but shooting a bird in-flight coming towards you and still being able to retain the details and astonishing definition as you did on your photo is nothing short of remarkable brilliance. I am spellbound by this photo and the perfect presentation.
The camera work is incredible since the slowish shutter speed did not give you any room for error or movement. Yet, you have captured the bird with amazingly sharp focus while you also show the stunning movement in the wing tips. Bear in mind that a hawk in mid-flight coming towards you is really a very small target to aim at and still get everything to work out so well. The colours are splendid, that perfectly complimentary BG is totally OOF, and the exposure was brilliantly spot-on.
Intense and utterly dazzling work, TFS.

Jason, what a shot!
So sharp and detailed.
The pose is amazing and you managed this shot at top level.

I can even imagine how difficult this was...
I know i only have a compact capera, with a very slow AF, so even the most simple and normal in-flights are out of the question for me, but this one here - closing in on you - is definately fantastic!
The sharpness achieved here is really great and i especially like all the details on the hear, peaking with those bright, contrasting eyes that simply stand out so well!
The colors are also lovely and the contrast with the BG (very beautiful as it is) is also very good.
Wonderful composition and presentation, too.
Bravo and TFS

Excellent shot. I love the way the hawk look, very alert and agile. You have captured the eyes and head in perfect focus and the composition and position of the bird in it are very good.

That is an art work.
A wonderful, wonderful in flight!
So nice with the blurred forest background.
The bird is busy turning to the right, right towards you which makes it so good. Together with the long wings and the green reflection and so forth it is a very impressive image.

Esta es una verdadera maravilla de captura en pleno vuelo Jason con espectacular punto de vista realzado por la gran agudeza y el ajustado pero eficiente DOF (sólo el extremo del ala aparece fuera de él).
A pesar de la escasa velocidad, la iluminación impacta sobre el ave mostrando excelentes detalles del mismo.
Muy buen contraste con el fondo logrado.
Un gran ejemplo de foto en acción... sin dudas.
Un cordial saludo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo
This is a true marvel of capture in middle of flight Jason with spectacular point of view enhanced by the great sharpness and the tight but efficient DOF (the end of the wing only appears outside of him).
In spite of the slow speed, the lighting impacts on the bird showing excellent details of the same one.
Very good contrast with the achieved bottom.
Great example of picture in action... without doubts.
A cordial greeting from Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Absolutely outstanding photo of in-flight entertainment...
You've got an amazing photo here. Obviously the work of a photographer who knows exactly what he's doing.
The bird is so sharp, and at a comparatively slow shutter, he must have been cruising fairly slow for this to have occured with all the detail intact, or you tracked him so well you knew the precise moment. Either way perfect.
To have him staring directly at you adds even more. The lighting emphasises him brilliantly especially against the blurred and dark background.
A superb creature taken with superb skill.

Wow, what a great flight capture. Marvelous. Perfect details and naturel colours. It splendidly the two wingtips has been spread out. A very nice BG and POV. It is a perfect shot and your notes are also interesting. Well done. Regards and TFS Bob

Totally stunning in all respects! The OOF background really makes the bird stand out and the bird itself is tack sharp.
