Kestrel

Whilst David and I were driving near Villeneuve one day (actually I should have said that we were travelling because only David was driving; I was simply a passenger) we seemed to come across dozens of Kestrels.  From a moving car and often through the glass I tried time after time to capture the birds in the air and on electricity lines.  Time after time I thought I had succeeded.  In fact I had captured many pictures but when I enlarged them they were all, predictably I suppose, blurred.
 

But I was rather pleased with the next one which was taken from the ramparts of the village of Soumensac down into a field hundreds of metres away:

  1. Lovely photo :-)

    We had a similar experience in the US (although I've no idea what type of birds of prey they were), but I failed to get a single photo. Lovely to see so many just the same.

  2. That brought a smile to my face. And you didn't have to sit on a dusty back road to get the shots, either!

  3. Wow. Lovely looking creature. Of course here we only have the Falcon. Unless you count the Australasian Harrier.
