I think this series is amazing Smile. Took along chesil beach, dorset. For those who dont know birds of prey very well...Its a Kestral.The reason I think these are amazing is because you dont often see a Kestral hunting. Sadly it did not catch what it was after Sad. Hope you like it...Luke

Hi Luke, a good set and well captured. The copywrite letters (LDW) are a bit heavy handed though, especially on V1 where they obscure part of the bird Wink

A brilliantly recorded hunt - I agree with Martin about the letters though.

Yes a nice set of images but the letters spoil them.

Very well panned series of shots - especially the ones of him/her in the bush - you can watermark your shots more subtle by using a lighter colour / similar to say to the wing and watermark the bird itself - very difficult to remove but not spoiling the shot - Ina

Wonderful set, just seen thm as the featured photo on EPZ at 17.07, but the watermark? Maybe try an invisble embedded one?
