Photo taken at Laguna Seca Ranch in South Texas last week.

Nikon D810, 300mm lens, 1/2000 sec at f/5.6, ISO 640.

There's always a dominant Caracara at every gathering.  This shows the dominant Caracara with his head back.  They seem to do this whenever they are proud of something they just did or just want to show off.

Better detail if you click on the image.

Nice interaction! Looks like it could go just a tad darker on my screen.

Excellent poses. I love the expression on the face of the other one as well.

Really interesting behavior. Good detail and techs are spot on.

They look like a really charismatic species, Gene.
Nice behavior capture here - and another vote for a touch darker
