Hi Michel,

And what a wonderful picture it is! A beautiful shot of the Cooper Hawk showing off his marvelous face, fantastic plumage and magnificent wings and tail feathers. The colors are so natural, details are so sharp and the pose on the tree is fantastic.

Brilliant image, Michel .Love the catchlight , and the colors here . The exposure is spot ON . If I have to nit pick , the BG could have been better , but I am sure there is little you could have done about it .

Bonjour Michel,

Voici une bien jolie et dynamique image d'un épervier de Cooper. Excellente exposition et bon timing pour attendre ainsi qu'il étende son aile et sa queue (il devait être en session de nettoyage...).

Une bien jolie shot!

Bye et merci!

Buen trabajo a pesar del difícil ángulo empleado. Buenos colores.
Un abrazo: Josep Ignasi.

Hello Michel,
The intense gaze of this hawk is well captured here My Friend, and the pose you have captured with it spreading his wing is very pleasant. I have a question Michel with the 1.4 convertor do you find you lose any image quality.

Superb shot of this raptor, Michel, my friend.
The pattern on its breast and the details of the entire bird are super fine.

Hi Michel
Great capture of the hawk...Excellent natural color and POV...TFS
