    Default Shaheen Falcon

    SHAHEEN FALCON is rarely found in this region of West Bengal. I dont find any previous written record.
    I was taking photos of Kentish Plover on the river bed. Suddenly all the little birds fly away to see that raptor hovering over them. I was quite nervous to see that predator at just 20 m away. But I slowly moved towards him to capture his beauty. Avoiding me, he was busy to bath and to quench his thirst.

    Wow rare sighting. Lovely pose, especially the raised foot and the visible talon. Nice catch light on the eye. Look forward to more in the series. Thanks for sharing.

    Shaheen Falcon! You are having a rush of good luck (due to your dedication). Keep an eye for the Amur Falcon too. Great image from a low angle. Thanks for sharing.

    Lovely sighting. I like the eye contact. The blacks have lost details in the tail. Wondering if that was the case in the original or it is because of the processing. How much of a crop is this? Did you click a vertical? Look forward to some more images of this beauty. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
    Sabyasachi

    Thanks for the comment Sir....
    That portion has lost details due to improper focus (used single focus - centre)...I cropped the picture up to to 67 percent. I have taken vertical composition and I shall post it.
