I cannot think of another word to describe what I see looking at this bird than "Striking" Take note: Striking with a capital S. I've said it many times and I do want to say it again, this is my kind of pose, and I like a lot. A bird looking straight at you or captured from the front. It just gives a total different perspective and feel to the image. The eye contact is great and the blink in the eye is an additional bonus to this already special image. Just to think, you have captured not only one blink but twice. Smoothness and detail of the plumage is displayed beautifully. Best wishes for you and your loved ones over this Christmas period.

What a fantastic portrait. Amazing eye-contact. Excellent sharpness and great natural colours. The contrast against the dark BG is splendid. Perfect POV and composition.
Wonderful Christmas days,

That Raptor in the Forest Day must have been phenomenal. This close-up of the Peregrine is just amazing. He must have been looking right into your eyes! The facial features and the feathers are magnificent. A most awesome shot. A very Merry Christmas to you and you family. I hope Santa is good to you :-)

This is a super capture.
But to my eye you have missed your focus point which is the eyes..
This may well be how you intended to take the image ..The eyes can hold a lot of distracting reflections.
All the same and none the less..
I wish you a very Happy Christmas.
I tip my hat in a Santa Style to you Sir.
All the Best

I had a peregrine falcon on my house one day.The conditions were snowy and overcast so the photos are lousy,not like this beauty.
Excellent POV and DOF.
The colours are vibrant and well saturated.
Excellent detail and clarity.
The eye contact is wonderful.

Hi Joe and Merry Christmas!
This is a wonderful close-up from you, my friend!
Falcons are my favorite bird so it's a jy to watch some excellent photos of them here.
You managed something amazing here - capturing that reflection from its eyes - and that gives the photo such a unique feel. Very original!
I hope you had a great Christmas together with your loved ones and i wish you only the best for the next year!
Cheers and TFS

powerfully gripping strictly frontal portrait of that Falcon. I like the well shaping light, the well saturated intense colours, the gradual fading into soft depth from the precisely focussed beak that makes the image look quite three-dimensional. Well written informative notes. Thank you!
With all my best wishes to you for a happy, joyous, exciting New Year!
