Hello Jose,
This is one bird that has eluded my lens so far, but you seem to be having no problem photographing them. Just to get an inflight shot alone would be quite an accomplishment, but you managed to get one with it's prey in talons.
Nicely framed and displaying beautiful color and good detail. Great eye contact, and I like the way the wing tips are blurred just enough to show wing motion.
