I am delighted to announce that my image of a Kestrel has been awarded
PHOTO OF THE YEAR 2014 by BIRDGUIDES.
There were around 325,000 bird images uploaded to www.birdguides.com over the last year, so for mine to be chosen from such a large pool is personally very rewarding.
Well done to all of the runners up and Highly Commended photographers and thanks to Birdguides and their judges for organising this competition. Full details can be found here:- http://www.birdguides.com/webzine/article.asp?a=4847
This image was in fact one of the very first images I took whilst testing and fine tuning my Canon 7D MK2 camera . It was coupled to a Canon 800mm lens when this picture was taken.
