Karl, beautiful pose with the diagonal wing spread and the hawk peering across the frame! Also, the light and background are excellent. Very nicely done!

I understand the oldest one in captivity is 30 years old, but this is amazing at 28! Normally only up to 20 years is good - and your one looks well for its age, Karl.
