Très belle lumière qui délimite bien le crecerelle.
Le bokeh est tout aussi magnifique que ce rapace.

Thanks a lot
For this shot, I used an old 400 2.8 L USM lens... this lens is PERFECT (but heavy and expensive of course ;D ) For the camera, it was my old buddy the 350D, not that bad for this small camera ;-)

Thank you very much. In fact, the sun was covered by some clouds... that is why you can see the bird quite well :-)

Almost... but he is not... last year, another falcon tried to come closer... poor one, I had to carry him in the closest vet for wild birds.

at times I get Sooooo bored of waiting XD and when I take my dog out for bike rides down by the Mississippi river she wants to go and I want to wait to take some good shots.

(note, never bring your pet when taking pictures.... they scare way things and drive you CRAZY LOL)
