Title: American Kestrel

Lots to love here. First, the eyes and face are in clear focus. Next, the bird is framed well, making it the focal point of the image, even without the creamy bokeh that really makes it pop. Finally, that little hint of motion in the feet, coupled with the over the shoulder look, tells the story of a creature checking its surroundings as it prepares to take flight.
