Wow, this is cool. Look at the strong profile. How very majestic. All I can say is, I am glad that your not a mouse. You captured the very essence of those penetrating eyes so very well. Beautiful.

Congratulations on your achievements.

For sure, this is shot is best for being impressive, and has been framed perfectly to the point ,which's the Hawk's head.
No more talk's needed.
Im a bit late to comment on your shot,sorry for that.

But yes, very well done.

Good luck with your future shots,
Ardalan

Marcus,

Amazing sharpness and detail my friend. Congrat's are in order. Sweet glass by the way... Although I don't think that I would want to be that close, just in case he mistook me for a rat... ;)

Marcus, this is simply amazing. I never knew that they have hair-like feathers by their beaks before. This shows so many details that I've never seen before. Congrats on both this remarkable photo and the award.

Lucky for you to get soooo close but no luck in getting this awesome shot.Your shooting data tells me that you change your aperture to get a sharper image which you did successful.Did you get a in flight capture when he flew away?
Take care Marcus.
Robbie
Some of the Ospreys here are not flying from you
