The smoky background in this photo is caused by just that, smoke - results of the big burnup of stubble in the fields in September.

Hello Mark,
Good shot of this Roadside Hawk, the smoke doesn't bother me but on the another hand the bird look a bit noisy, quite a nice pose, good exposure under the difficult circumstances,

Beautiful bird in impressive pose and Great photo Mark!! The composition, the colours and the sharpness are excellent.

Hello Mark,
Very beautiful photo of a Roadside Hawk in a nice pose. Excellent sharpness, details and natural colours. Good composition.

Hi Mark,
This is a really difficult shot with the hawk in the trees like this. You managed a pretty good focus despite all the branches. It's very rare I think to catch a hawk in the wild with this good a close up. The smoke is actually a pretty good background. Well done.

amazing raptor capture, TFS Ori

Bonjour Mark,
