Great detail with wonderful background. A species I don't get to see. Thanks for sharing this great image.

What a sweet capture of this lovely youngster. You can see its on its way to becoming the beautiful adult we love to see hunting and hovering in our countryside.

sweet fluffy baby - great catch. Nice pose, fine detail, complimentary Bg and the perch doesn't bother me a bit.

Thankyou for looking and comments,just like to mention that I am not a fan of Hands of Man perches,but this metal perch is old and rotting,so it did not bother me too much.thanks again.

Chris, cute little guy with charming puffy pose, love the downy feathers on forehead.  Intriguing lighting, and the dark BG makes the juvie pop - really sweet image.
