    Wonderful detail and very sharp. Like the feathers of the prey and the bit of blood on the bill. Would have loved to see a side view of the head (with one eye) or even better, the bird staring down the lens barrel.

    with love, arite

    Looks like the sparrow was hungry. Nice and sharp. Detail is very nice as well.

    I recognize this handsome hawk. Loved this series Will, truly!

    Looks like it was a tasty treat. Stunning pop of yellow really draws the attention. Love the fine beak hairs too.

    I do agree that having one or both eyes could enhance it just a bit. Hope there's more in the set down the road my friend!

    Super colours and details Will, a tad large in the frame for me but nevertheless a fine shot.
