Hi Yoram,

What a catch I think it is great, the colours are special, sharpness and good details.

Hi Yoram,
I liked this photo very much. Timing, details and BG great. TFS.

Hallo Yoram
An admirable action (I mean landing) shot. It seems as if this Kestrel is following you with its eye to see if you are looking at him. I like the yellow coloured eye and top part of the beak. Lovely patterns on the feathers. You have been awarded with a beautiful image for being on the right place at the right time. I enjoyed this one very much.Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Hi Yoram,

It is a very good photo. There are clear details of bird's eye despite the motion of the bird. Colors look natural and composition is good.

Thank you for sharing,
