This guy has been hit by a car and can no longer fly properly. This is a common occurrence as they often hunt along the road verges.

V1 could be a tighter crop but it nice and sharp.
V2 great colours just think Lower F-stop to through background out of focus.
Spot focus will work better manual set to eyes..
