This one haves a great visual impact wherever you see it. "Rescue Mission", I personally love the title of this photo. The details on the feathers and the hawk's expression... I really don't have words :heart:

By the way, the effect caused for use the B&W style for the photo allows better highlight the most important to the center, the animal.

Full of sentiment, full of spirit (sorry if this sounds weird).

So difficult to describe all the contain of this image. I just can say, it's full of all of what we want to see all day: Love to All

So much cries out when I see this image. The bird looking up, aghast at its current situation and unaware that the owner of those hands only wishes to deliver it to safety.

The black and white image further amplifies the power and starkness of the image. Without knowing whether it is a kestrel or a falcon or what not, we are reminded that all are birds of a feather that occasionally are rescued from dire situations by us "two feet".

The photographer shows excellent skill, placement, and use of black and white to present an image of security for the bird in hand, but also a sense that despite the confusion on the birds part, that all will be well.
