In the hour it took to eat the pigeon, sometime the sun broke through give me the chance to shoot the little glint in its eye, here is a crop of 2400x1600 from 7200x2400 downsized to the standard trek format

Hello Jeroen,
Pin sharp photo with nice natural colors and excellent details. I like this lovely photo taken from a very good POV. Nice contrast against the dark background.

Hello Jeroen,
Outstanding close-up image of this feeding Goshawk. Top quality in every aspect of nature photography. I especially like the fine detail and natural colors. Love the clean blurred BG. Only wish I had taken it;)

Prachtbeeld Jeroen,een kalenderplaatje.TOP!!!

Thanks for sharing.

Hello Jeroen,
Beautiful portrait of this Goshawk. Perfect composition. I like HORIZONTAL frame here, KEEPING BODY CENTRED ON A THIRD LINE; WITH MORE SPACE INFRONT. No doubt, perfect BG for portrait, with excellent exposure.
Thanks for sharing,
