Sharp head on image. Nice composition with a great background. Good looking Meadowhawk well captured.

Fine image, classic pose, looking good despite the difficult light.

I like the wing arrangement here- makes for an interesting composition. I suppose she is frightening to some small creature!

Yes, I wouldn't like to come face to face with a monster version! Excellent close up study, Craig.
