Muy nítida fotografía de este Falco tinnunculus, muy elegante la composición con predominante tonalidad parda. Felicitaciones! Muy bien captada tambien la pose del halcón levantando una de las garras.

Hello Jose,
A wonderful display of this beautiful Common Kestrel. You have photographed it perfectly in the best light possible and have shown in it fine detail.
I love these little birds of prey and hope we will have them around for our grandchildren and their grandchildren to enjoy viewing.

Hello Jose,
I missed some of your photos.....I was very busy in the last months....As usual you post a wonderful specie. Excellent photo with perfect focus and WB. Perfect clarity and fantastic sharp details. I like the contrast against the blurry background. It is a perfect photo.
Thanks for sharing!

Boa tarde Jose,
Fantastic close photo of this Common Kestrel in superb sharpness, details and splendid light. Very beautiful natural colours. Attractive pose against a beautiful blurred background, despite the little dirty spot.

Hello Jose

Great close-up shot of the Common Kestrel,
fine POV you have shot the photo at the best
moment of its pose with the leg and claws movement,
great focus, sharpness, and details, the little catch-light
enhance the photo by rendering it more beautiful, TFS
