Nice picture of this American raptor! I like his expression and the funky "hairdo" in this POV. Never seem one, but know the bird well from books. Well done, Rudy!

Rudy, I have seen this bird only once in a bird park. I was very tame and untied ones shoelaces. Very nice capture. TFS.

Very nice picture Rudy.
Good colours, good composition and good details.
But it is a little soft ,
I did a WS with USM.
Well done.

Rudy, Great head-shot with nice head/tilt pose for the camera. Great details & sharp where it counts. Very nice one!

Hermoso primer plano con agradables colores y excelente expresion capturada Rudy.
Solo que el foco es un poco suave... un valor del F mayor hubiera sido optimo en este caso.
De todas formas, excelente presentacion... la incluire en mi Tema sobre Aves Predadoras.

Beautiful close up with pleasant colors and excellent captured expression Rudy.
Only that the focus is a little smooth... a value of the greater F had been optimal in this case.
In any case, excellent presentation... I will include in my Theme on Predaceous Birds.

This one is gorgeous, excellent portrait. LOads of detail, the pose/composition is fantastic. Good work.

Beau sujet pris sous un angle intéressant et dont la pose est mise en valeur par une composition judicieuse et la profondeur de champ qu'il fallait.
