    Great!
    I like the first two - the first he is looking at his reflection and then in the second he is looking right at you!
    Good series shots - just how do you managed to do any work with a pond attracting hawks like that ? ;)

    Very cool series. He (she?) really has a classic hawk expression in the first one.

    Second shot is fantastic. Lucky break.
    The colors are nice, and so is the symmetry, but the reflection looks really low poly. I don't know if that's the actual image quality or just some fancy illusion created by the ripples.

    What lense/camera were you using?

    Nikon D300 With a F2.8 300mm lens and a 1.7 teleconverter (515mm). Not sure what you mean by "low poly", excuse my ignorance.
