Hello Tom,
Excellent photo of this Kestrel in fantastic sharpness and details. Superb timing. Beautiful light and natural colours. Great composition.

You are on top of the world with this capture Tom! Love the superb timing here, and ..what a clarity indeed! The blue sky is fantastic too! Bravo!

Hello Tom,

Very nice capture of this in-flight Kestrel my friend, (but if it wasn't for the over sharpening), great exposure/white balance control and impressive composition, good camera skills and well done,
Best regards Tom and have a nice weekend,
