These Osprey shots were tough as it's perch was at edge of lake and facing into the sun. Iwas stuck with the position I had and felt lucky at that.:-)

First one is approach to perch.....hiding it's head from me

Hey VP there are some great captures here. I love the first one even though his head is hidden. Great composition on all of them. Was the kestrel further away?

Thanks Mountain Hawk. Yes, the Kestrel was a bit farther out and this is a 100% crop. Probably needed a little more sharpness but the crop made it a little harder...for me. I have tried numerous times to get a decent shot of one of these little guys.

The second one from the top fantastic. Not only the spread wings are gorgeous but the glare from the right eye is also breath-taking. Undeniably, it is a bird of fierceness. You have made that quality shown in your catch.

Kestrels are hard to get because they are very flighty. One of my favorites. Well done
