What a great photo, Peter, this Buteogallus meridionalis flying straight toward the viewer. It is not common to see a raptor in flight from this perspective. Great job!

You did a fine job of capturing this Savanna Hawk image from your car, looks like it was about to fly directly to you. Awesome facial features with eyes fixed in a piercing gaze. Focus is extremely sharp allowing us to view it's beautiful features and pretty colors perfectly. Great job!!

Hope you are well and life is good. I am hard pressed for time these days and it proves difficult to comment after posting one's own photo and one does feel a shade guilty, you know the feelings.Earlier I did watch this beautiful in-flight/action photo but failed to comment....but here I am and I am all praise for your presence of mind and the quick action you have shown to catch this predator in flight. Excellent!
Thanks a lot for sharing, take care,

Great in-flight shot of the Savanna Hawk and from an open window car !
wonderful light coming on the subject, great focus, sharpness, details,
the catch-lights on both eyes improve the photo by rendering it more beautiful, TFS

I missed out this mind blowing in-flight picture of a Hawk from Brazil, Peter. Happy to see it now!
With high shutter speed, the bird has been frozen into a frame that is just perfect in every respect. The eye contact is just smashing!
Thanks for sharing this superb acquisition from your trip abroad.

wow - stunningly direct and precise face to face capture of a hawk in flight!
Absolutely exciting to see your image making me feel being the hawk's target.
Certainly one of the best moments for a photographer who is skilled enough to focus and press the trigger right in time.
My congratulations, and thank you!
