Nice shot of this beautiful bird. I'm not very good at identifying birds of prey so I cannot tell which specie this is... I like this POV and this great eye contact. Lightning is good too but I guess that it is a bit OE on its head but you also have some shadow in the right part, so I guess that wasn't easy to calibrate... This is very well done anyway… That must be so impressive to have him looking at you like this... :) TSF,

Great photo. I like that you managed to capture the spirit of the bird. I like the intensive eyes on the bird.
But like you I'm not sure if it's a eagle or a falcon but I guess that someone here will correct us.

NICELY COMPOSED SHOT. THE BIRD IS LOOKING STARIGHT IN TO THE LENS OF CAMERA AND THIS IS AMAZING. THE POV IS GOOD. DOF EXCELLENT. SHARPNESS IS GOOD. GOOD WORK. KEEP IT UP.

This is a lovely head shot of this common Buzzard. I have seen family groups of 5 circling the sky here in the UK. A bit more DOF would have shown the breast feathering sahrper and IMO would enhance the photo even more.
