Excellent capture of beautiful bird. If I am not wrong this is the national bird of U.A.E. It so impressive. Amazing sharpness in this image with beautiful colors and details. Well done. Regards - Adil.
Hi Goutham. i agree with you about catch light but this can not allways be captured with out sun light . Dull clouds which we often have can be a problem. Anyway this is a fine close up of this beautiful looking bird. good detai land natural colours in the feathers. well done TFS.

Yes I agree about the desirablity of a catchligt in the eye and it certainly add s to the vitality of the image, as you have here in this fine capture of a female Kestrel. The lighting against the blue sky is great and the image is sharp. The POV with the sloping thorny perch lends itself to this composition and the close framing is good here.
TFS and best regards,

O, this bird is posing for you. It is a very good portret, and indeed, the light in the eye vives some life to the picture and to the bird itself. Congratulation for this capture.
Kind regards, Oana

it's always nice to have a catch light in the eyes but as Nick mention some days it's impossible, then a weak fill-in flash
can be useful and it's also useful to level the shadows to a small bright up as we see on the tail here. The problem is to avoid the complete flash light light.
Well composed with good sharpness and fine details.
Well done, mf.
