Hi Mario and a warm welcome back!
Nice to see you posting again, my friend!
This black hawk looks magnificent!
I really like the POV from which the shot was taken, the DOF you chose and the exposure you managed.
Also the sharpness of the details is impeccable and the natural colors are very beautiful.
The look in it's eye is also great!
Wonderfully composed, as well.

Cheers and Happy 2007!

Superb shot with great details.
Great composition and I like the way he's looking over his shoulder at you.
Well done
