Great in-flight! Te details and action are nice.

I am not sure if it is just shadowing or not, but the underside of the wings of the kestrals we have around here is almost a creamy whie with dark spots, not grey as you have it here.

Very nice! I love the sharp detail in the wing feathers and face but blurred background-- really gives a sense of flight and movement.
