Hello Marios,
What a neat fully raised outstretched wing pose you managed to capture. Tac sharp focus allowing us to see the colorful and uniquely marked plumage of this fine looking Kestrel. I love the deep blue sky for a BG, something we don't often see here in Ohio. Well done!!

Hello Marios,
a fine shot of the kestrel on it`s perch,the details are most impressive.
Regards Les.

Hello Marios
