    As Helen says, excellent work.

    You set up the shot wonderfully well so that you did get that background. That's all about good planning and vision.

    Fantastic shot! Absolutely tack sharp. I'm drawn right to the bird's eye, and the background is wonderful.

    Very nice indeed.

    Chris, it's obvious that you take bird photography very seriously, and are good at it. Some stand-out stuff here, among a world of bird shooters. It takes a lot of effort to get images like that on a consistent basis.

    Hello Chris, wonderful capture. Not sure I would be on my belly with the camera supported by a bean bag...being 69 years old I take it a little less enthusiastically. Great detail and color. There is a patch on the breast that appears soft, I have had that happen in a few of my birds. I am not sure why, do you know?

    Re: in thought young Peregrine

    Thankyou everybody for your nice comments,Joe,about the soft feathers,I noticed this as well,it was not a high shutter speed,so maybe a bit of camera or bird movement,I have plenty more,and the feathers dont look soft,so maybe human error.thanks again.
