He was after Squirrels but failed.
The light was very bad hence the low shutter speed and high ISO.

Great details and look-back pose, the low light worked well.

Karl, The details and clarity are excellent. I would never have known it was at 5000 iso. The bg couldn't be much better.

Excellent image, Karl- the high ISO and slow shutter speed, certainly had no effect here on the quality of the photograph. Always great to see birds of prey featured here.
