Just Super I would be thrilled just to see one of these guys.Outstanding in every way Great work Monte
How could you possibly get any better than this, Monte! Beautiful! Dick
Terrific shot Monte..the whole "shooting match", colour, clarity, content..etc....Regards
Great in every aspect
Oh my!!! I feel like I could reach out and touch those two and I'd better before they fly away over my shoulders!!! Beautiful image with wonderful tones. I have to say that of all the great features you produce in your photos, Monte, its the incredible sharpness of your images just blows me away!! Just masterful work!!
impressive indeed. super moment, and perfect sharpness with no visible sign of artificial sharpening. Perhaps I would crop out the most right part, because the small visible part of the larger branche doesn't ad something, but catches some attention and curiosity that would better go to the birds. Perhps one other detail, but to be sure i should see the original ... perhaps on mail? I will not use it fro any goal ! keep sharing these great moments of nature. cheers, ... Piet
great catch ! a.r.
Absolutely brilliant, Monte! They are almost posing for you. So difficult to get 2 AK with enough dof to be sharp. Best regards, Linh Dinh

An fantastic capture of this bird couple.. The colors and light in this shoot is so warm and beautiful... Splendid shoot... Best Regards, Jill
Super bird shot. The eyes and feather of both are nicely captured and the contrast of one with wings open and the other with wings closed makes for a very original image.
Beautiful. Superb image. Regards, Jean-Marc
I agree with Chris, I'd be happy to get one Kestrel. These are all really wonderful images.

Outstanding capture of these hard birds. A beautiful image, Monte (as is usual)
Kestrel pair Hi Monte, I think this is the best of your kestrel shots, you got lucky with eye contact and open wing position. BG is smooth and light is soft. As a minor retouch I'd remove the little peice of the bark on the lower right corner to have just a clean curved branch, but perfect as is.

I really like your Kestrel Series, everything is perfect in every single one of them from the background to the colors to the composition to the details to the interaction. This image shows how larger the female is compares to the male in raptors.
A very pleasing photo. Great capture and spot-on exposure. Congrats.
