Hello Luis,
A top quality image of this beautiful Broad-Winged Hawk. It posed perfectly for you, even drooping its wing a bit to give you a better view of its lovely plumage. Bright vivid colors yet very natural in appearance. I really like the eye contact and the intense gaze on its face. Excellent work!!

beautiful buteo...thanks.

Excelente pose!
composição perfeita!

Hi Luis,
once again a perfect presentation. Very beautiful hawk.

Hello Luis,
Very well captured this Hawk. Perfect (to me) composition as well as details. Well exposure although in such harsh sunlight a few white feathers look OE, but it doesn't disturbed match in this picture. Great focus on its eye. Good work.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice WE,
