Fantastic composition and angle.
Closeup is good and appropriate. Did much justice to a bird of prey. Great colors and DOP. Love the green background.

A great POV, Alexandra.
Well saturated colors.
The focus is a tad soft,
but a wonderful close-up.
TFS. : )

great portrait of this flying predator! amazing reach colors. great focus and details. tfs

And attention to detail have it all here, alexandra.

Nice job


I believe the bird is a Harris Hawk. It used to go by the rather more interesting name of Bay-winged Hawk in reference to beautiful chestnut patch on the wings.
