    Looking real nice Sesan.

    Great flight angle and man, that red eye....

    Love the vole/dinner in the talons and I also like that you anchored the frame with the brush in the LRC.

    Good detail, minimal shadows; it all works well. Thanks for sharing!

    This is a belter super colours great composition and for me I can see the detail in the plumage, so many previous flight shots have been super colours and composition and poses etc but I just didn't get to see the detail in the plumage. Ok maybe it's just me but just saying.

    IQ is terrific and a great eye..mouse is great .. sharp and detailed. Everything looks very nice, if far wing were up a bit it would be a 10!

    looks very nice, love the light and the BG. I wanted to say they are similar to the north American white-tailed kite but the plumage looks different, there is certainly more "definition" and color variation in the shoulder area. and especially the eye color is quite a bit brighter and more red here, is it natural ?

    did I mention the vole makes it even better?

    Really nice shot, great pose and the bit of nest gives context. Prey takes it up further.

    thanks jonathan, I think this amount of detail is good for combining the 2X converter and this lens

    thanks Sassan, the eye indeed looks brighter and more red. your bird actually looks more like the juvenile white-tailed kites here. They have rust-color spots on the chest and more grey/brown on the topside. below are examples. The adults pretty much look like a white pillow with a pair of ruby like eyes
