Hi Paul this is a geat shot congradulations, i thought they were only this close while they were passing over the sea in spring migration at istanbul, this was even much much closer, so much details, TFS
This is a stunning capture, for all that you were unable to get the whole of both wings. The expression in the face is amazing.
Although the detail on the wing is fabulous, the real majesty is in the face, so I would be inclined to crop tightly to the face and body (as I have done in a workshop). Bravo, Paul
This is a fabulous first post.
Welcome to TrekNature
This is a striking and amazing picture. I love the unusual look and crop. Ori
I guess you didn't truncate the wing on purpose. Good result anyway. Perfectly exposed, which is difficult with a sky as background (well done). Very detailed. Lovely expression.
What a great shot! It is quite strange when birds happen to look to you in the eye while you're photographing them. Every time it happens to me, I asked myself, do they realize it or is it just a good timing? I guess their instinct guides them to look at eventual predator and there is the right moment for the magic click... Very good capture, well done, what a nice bird! TFS,
Excellent detail here, perfect exposure, great light, all the makings of a beautiful shot, if only the wing weren't missing. I posted a workshop to help rectify that, hope you like it!
