Amazing blue sky- as janice said - it looks like polish blues sky!
Your eagle looks like thinking about something serious!

Wonderful shot Toni. You really nails this guy. Stands out nicely against the deep blue sky. No nits here. Congrats!

A beautiful capture of this bird, Toni.
I especially like the dark blue BG which sets off your subject well.
Great details, colors, lighting, composition.

A very good flight shot - but this is actually a juvenile Brahminy Kite, Haliastur indus. It can be difficult to identify raptors, particularly when their juvenile plumage is completely different to the adult birds.

Difficult flight shot. Well executed. Nice colors and excellent sharpness.

The bird is captured in a very nice pose. Great details and framing. Well done on exposure too. I just think the colour of sky looks slightly unnatural.
Anyway, I like it the picture a lot.
VERY WELL DONE!

Toni, this is a great capture.
Excellent colors and saturation.
I like composition a lot.
You did freeze the flight.
Besides, lovely catchlight.

Hi Toni, nice to see you back. Great shot of the Black Kite. You can see his piercing eyes searching out for a tasty bit of food below. It look so good against the blue sky. Nice and sharp too. Well done,

Magnificent! Well caught and very sharp focus showing us a lot of detail. I think you even managed to get its attention. Action stopped well too.
TFS No more smileys today, I owe you.
