Hi Yoram,
Great shot of the Eagle, lots of good detail and colour with good DOF. Is that a snake in his mouth? TFS.

Wow, super in-flight shot, Yoram.
The details are so clear, with good light.
He seems to be looking at you.
That snake (?) is his beak adds interest to the shot.
Excellent management of DOF.

Hi Yoram,
It's a very beautiful in-flight shot of the short-toed eagle with his prey. Focus, light, sharpness and your POV is very good. Well done and TFS

Great shot there and nicely done. good detail and good DOF, though maybe ISO400 woudl have allowed for a slightly great DOF without loosing shutter speed? Just a though.

Nicely done anyhow and TFS

Superb in-flight capture, complete with prey.

Excellent eye-contact with this shot.

Great sharpness and contrast.

Very good shot.

Hello Yoram , absolutely perfect raptor photo , TFS.

Awesome awesome shot! You even got eye contact with this guy! Plus the fact it is holding on to its catch.

Sharpness is great too and a FANTASTIC flight shot. :)

Hi Yoram,
impressive picture of this Short toed eagle. All details are sharp and the snake catching eagle is presented in a fantastic way.

Excellent action shot (double action actually: eating and flying)
Nice details. Clear shot. Even the background is excellent.
