[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a 100% crop carefully edited. This is the most common bird that I have in my Birds in Flight theme. It is a species easy to catch in flight because it hover over the fields and it's quite sociable.
But every picture from the theme was made in a different photo session.
SPECIES: Falco Tinnunculus (lat.) // Common Kestrel (en.) // Vanturel Rosu (ro.)
