Have you ever tried to photograph a Kestrel?  Well if you have, you know you are not always going to be successful and  it can be a daunting task!

For as soon as the bird spies you it is gone, flown off, as was my experience yesterday. Over the years we have observed specific places on high wires where we know we will see a Kestrel perching  We deliberately went in search of this one yesterday and as usual when it saw our vehicle approach it flew off as is seen above, but my camera caught it in flight. I did mange to get a photo of the Kestrel on the wire , but we were at a far distance and I used my telescopic lens and did a bit of post processing on it

Have a great day everyone!

I have tried, they seem to spook easily. And are seen flying away as I lift my camera! They are beautiful. Have a great day!
