Excellent bird in action picture. The pose from this bird is lovely. Composition and exposure are great. Admirable picture.
The way he turns and looks at you.
Beautiful detail in the bird and still the blue of the sky.
I think I would have chosen a differnt frame to display it thought.
But great work.

Excllent in-flight photo, perfect details, very crisp, nicly composed and capture photo, great Job,
wie hast du denn dem seine Aufmerksamkeit erweckt, er schaut dir ja regelrecht in die Linse. Super timing und klasse Schaerfe zeichnen das Adlerflugbild aus.

Great in flight shot! Good sharpness and exposure. I like how the bird is peaking backwards towards the camera. Well seen and captured!

Sharp, well composed and well lighted are the ingredients that make this shot good. But as this kestrel had the sense to turn his head, thís shot has an extra bonus! Well done!

Tolle Schärfe und supere Moment, vielen Dank und Gruß

Amazing performance with a 200mm lens! WOW! I know i have onyl a compact cam but it has a 432mm (35mm equiv) zoom and i definately didn't get any shots like this until now...i should get pointers from you :)
The pose of the falcon is really great, turning to give you that great glance.
Excellent lighting and details, lovely colors and perfect blue BG.
Very well done, my friend!
Cheers and TFS
PS: cool pumpkins, too :)

indeed a very nice image, with a great pov. I agreed about the frame, but I read your note and I see your point.

Perhaps "common" by name, but not by nautre and certainly not "common" in terms of a photo. This is an awesome capture with a superb composition. TFs

Hola Thorsten, una bella captura al vuelo con lo difícil que debe ser, dada la agudeza visual de estas aves. Un cordial saludo

zum Falkner reicht es noch nicht - da mußt Du noch üben...ggg......
Sehr gute Momentaufnahme dieses Raubvogels! Dieser "Rüttler" ist übrigens der zweithäufigste Raubvogel in Deutschland. Sehr gute Schärfe, natürliche Farben und sehr guter POV.

This is an unbelievable shot! I tried to go out with my falconry sponsor and take pictures of him flying his saker falcons once and even with my 200-500mm lens was unable to get a clear shot of them - not even one! And, kestrels are the smallest falcons, so that is really quite impressive. It's impressive enough to get a shot that is this clear with that lens of a kestrel, but to get such a stunning look with such incredible detail and coloring. You should be very proud!
