Common Kestrel - Ground Level shots

After a month or two of trying, i finally managed to get myself the shot i wanted of this bird, the 'ground level shot' and believe me it isn't easy crawling on that rugged terrain. Both these images were shot with a Sigma 135-400mm DG APO(hand-held & manually focused) mounted on a Canon EOS 350D(borrowed from my friend Piyush). The other day i met a photographer in another vehicle who was shooting next to our vehicle, and said i got better images than him, as i had used the Canon 1D MkII, this is my reply to him, i have used one of the basic cameras here, and hand-held and manually-focused!
