Greetings TN friends. Although very I am rolled with the work, I want to teach this photo that I made the month last. One is a female of Montagús Harrier (Circus pygargus), which was taking to the nest branches to fix it and to put it more comfortable for its small ones. I hope that you like.

Nice close and detailed.
Majectic pose.
A brilliant catch indeed.

Watch out composition. Subject should never be centered. With photoshop or the-like application it is easy to uncenter the bird. I would have set it up and left to orientate the body toward the open space; or up and right to orientate the eyes toward the open space.

What a nice POV for an in-flight subject. I love the angle and the way the outstretched wings fill the frame. The focus is outstanding right down to the smallest stems in her beak. Great eye contact. Beautiful colors against a beautiful clear sky. You should be very proud of this one!

Jose, Un qué POV agradable para un tema de aviones. Amo el ángulo y la manera el terraplén outstretched de las alas el marco. El foco correcto excepcional abajo a los vástagos más pequeños de su pico. Gran contacto visual. Colores hermosos contra un cielo claro hermoso. ¡Usted debe ser muy orgulloso de éste! Ken

Hola Jose Luis,
Very good inflight capture of this Montagus Harrier with a fine frontal POV. Lighting and composition is beautiful. Well done and TFS

Hi Jose
great, even better than a normal flight picture. Sharpness spot on the eye! Lovely sky and good compo: I do not like centered pictures at all, but here in my opinion, it is working very well, because of the full frame and the diagonal compo.

Hello Jose,
Superb in flight image. What a moment...

Buenas señoritooooooooooo
Una milana bonita..... y con bigotes....
que ya se que es un aguilucho como tú....
Besitos.... perdón abrazossssstesss

Hi Jose Luis, An amazingly beautiful photo, excellent detail & stands out brilliantly against that pale blue dackdrop, very well composed & TFS, kind regards Wilson.
