Thank you for the compliment! This was taken yesterday, it was a great experience.
Two Kestrels were hunting from a couple of trees nearby.
I positioned myself where I thought I would get the best angle and light to capture one of the birds, prepared for the right moment, and got a bit lucky. The Kestrel spotted a prey very close to where I was standing, and kept his body and head still while moving his wings. The shot was taken at 1/400 so you can see a bit of wing movement. The background was distant, which helped with bokeh. Minimal cropping and slight editing and Voilà.

The slight wing blur is not a flaw. It adds to the sense of movement.

Red Tail Hawk at White Rock Lake

I wish he had perched at a branch that had fewer twigs between us but since he was only about 15 feet above me I shall not complain

A small flock of Yellow Canaries, though I am not 100% certain of the ID. It could be a Yellow eyed Canaries.
