Hello Irith,
Fantastic photo of this Falcon. Light, colours, details and sharpness are amazing. I've made a workshop without the wire and a crop on the right side. I hope you don't mind.

Olá Gi bela foto exelente nitidez é muito dificil fotograr contra luz,voce consegui com exelente qualidade esta imagem, este é o senhor do céu respeitado por todas aves,meus parabéns.

Hi Irith,
Details, focus, sharpness, POV and pose you captured are very nice. It looks better without the wire in the workshop that Peter made.
Best wishes,

Shalom Irith. Fantastic shot. It has everything of value; beautiful light that enhances the colours of the bird, excellent details and a magical moment when the wings and tail are outstretched to reveal all the finery.Bravo. Regards. Klaudio.

Hi Irith

Excellent sharpness in this great shot of the kestrel. Like PeterZ, I think it would look better without the wire, but its a minor detail.

Hi Irıth,
Characteristic hovering behaviour of this bird. You take it very good. Well done.
