Hello Jose,
This is one bird that has eluded me so far. I spot them on telephone wires from time to time, but I never have my camera on me when I do.
I love this action shot showing him landing with outstreatched wings while displaying his full concentration on his perch. A beautiful bird indeed and captured in a fine pose.
