Awesome shot! Eye level, great light, tack sharp, prey in beak, implied forward motion; what’s not to like?

What's not to like! Excellent behaviour captured on the move and in sweet light. Great shot, Axel!

One day I'll get to a spot that will allow me to photograph these birds but in the mean time I'll be left drooling over images like this ... fabulous image Axel, the sweet morning light, low pov, the snack and the raised foot .. perfect.

The warm early-morning light is wonderful and makes the image for me.

Wonderful light, color, detail and food in the mouth. The point of view works for me.
