The title is another visual pun, hinting at ghostly attributes as well as the limited tonal range of the image. Shot with the mighty 85mm f/1.5, contrast adjusted, desaturated taking just the red channel, finally duotone (tritone really) with black, a warm grey and a cold grey, custom drawn curves for this image to wash out the midtones etc. Then a so-called "smart blur" (kind of like neatimage overdone) and resized and sharpened over that.

Oh, i think he's a Broad-winged Hawk.

Well done! The softness makes the eye really stand out.
