Thank you everyone for your kind comments and congrats. I almost deleted this one because the sun behind light clouds had washed out the background. But after increasing the contrast a little and decreasing the brightness, I decided to keep it.
Thank you approvers as well! I appreciate it!

"I CAUGHT this morning morning’s minion, king-
dom of daylight’s dauphin, dapple-dawn-drawn Falcon, in his riding
Of the rolling level underneath him steady air. . .My heart in hiding
Stirred for a bird,—the achieve of; the mastery of the thing!"
G.M. Hopkins, "The Windhover"

Thanks for the closeup. Congrats on the AC!
