CommentThe small birds were tending to keep a low profile with these hunters around, so you go with what you have. This one seemed content to pose on a handy fence for a head and shoulders portrait, while occasionally swooping on small lizards etc. in the nearby low vegetation. I thought the natural gradient in the background helped the final image.
