Not my style and not my expertise ( not that I have any other).
Surprised how good it does.

Last minute entry. It took 30 min to shoot and PP and submit. And yes the background is busy and it is a bit over sharpened.

I'm curios where it will end

27th place ain't bad!

Very nice! Such an interesting looking bird - it must be so exciting to see birds like this in the wild (I guess most of us feel like this about foreign species!). The prized lunch (yuggh....) lifts this above many other bird portraits. You do seem to have lost some detail in the plumage - maybe a bit too much noise-reduction?

Yep - very well done .. a dinner in the mouth is worth considerable more points than just a bird.

I love the capture!

Unfortunately, the background is too in focus to show it off as well as I'd like.

It's so busy that it competes with the subject. Still... a 6 from me.

Great moment caught and not easy to get bird with prey. Much patience is needed. The BG is very busy but that is wild photography. You get what you get sometimes. I feel a bit over sharpened but overall a nice result.
