[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A very rare sight in my homeland Bulgaria is the Red-footed falcon (Falco vespertinus), endangered species.
I was lucky to spot one some days ago, on its migratory way to the North. Of course, I could not miss the opportunity to take some pictures.

Hello Ivo
Nice capture, you are really lucky, in my country it's not so rare but not easy to "shot".
