Good shots!
In the interest of full disclosure, the radio-telemetry antenna and the jesses identify this bird as a bird trained in falconry, not a wild bird. Such evidence of "the hand of man" would disqualify these images from the "wildlife" class, but they are good examples of B.I.F.,
Regards,
Dave

I like the balance of the first, but the electronics distract from the rest. S-

Damn modern technology. We now have radio controlled birds... :lol:

Some really great, clean shots of the bird. That requires a lot of practice.

Your first image is your weakest because the bird converges right on that horizon line but it's actually the one that appeals to me most. It has a strong design element, if only the bird were just above (or below) that line. Consider going through your collection and seeing if you can composite something similar.

Thanks for posting

Birds wearing radiotelemetry gear are not "electronically controlled"! The the transmitter aids in locating the bird when it has flown out-of-sight of the falconer.
