Fabulous shot of this high speed preying bird. Even in flight it is looking towards your camera. Excellent timing once again. The colours of its plumage stand out so well against the blurred BG. Darun hoyeche. Thanks for sharing.
Wish you a very Happy New Year!

a great wildlife image, a scene that's rare to see and capture. The bird is perfectly placed in the frame with great sense of space ahead of it and in the background. It's also superb that it's looking our way. The soft colours and the sweet morning light are very pleasing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a very happy year with great photographic adventures!

Quelle belle photo. Tu as su saisir l'oiseau en plein essor, juste au moment ou ses pattes quittent la branche pour s'envoler.J'aime beaucoup le choix de la profondeur de champs.
Bonne et heureuse année 2014

beautiful nature shot!
You couldn´t choose a better timing to capture this scene.Just perfect!
Also the blurry background accentuates well the main "star" of your composition.Excellently composed and executed shot.
Wish You a Happy New Year!

What a take off and what a catch! Subtle colors and superb handling of light from left, make it more delicate.
Wonderful action shot to end the year.
Shubho New Year,
