Common kestrel

I surprised this kestrel while it was resting on this branch, this picture was taken from behind and I waited for it to turn its head so I can see the eyes, I have another picture from the front and I will upload it later, but in this picture you can see its beautifull plumage on its back, full description you can find in my former post fency kestrel.

What a wonderful shot of this very elusive bird. It is one of my favorite birds, and I have tried to take pictures of them many times, but they always fly away. Great capture with excellent details, exposure and composition. TFS, Elroyie.

Well worth waiting for it to turn it's head. It makes an excellent composition. Very good contrast. Well done.
