Incredible photo, how does this not have any views or comments yet? This is the kind of photo you expect from a field guide, not a personal camera! Awesome job, keep it up!

Beautiful colors and feather detail captured in this Caracara Stanley!
 
Wonderful colours and detail in this action shot, Stanley.
 
Nice to see them expanding their range. I had only known of them in Florida. I used to see them north of Lake Okeechobee. Great photo too. Makes me want a real camera, I mostly digiscope with my phone on a spotter and shots like this are impossible.
 
A superb colourful detailed and colourfully lit flyer, Stanley. Three brilliant framed captures, well done.
