The Kestrel ( falco tinnunculus )

The previous shot of this lady showed her very much in active mode; looking for a meal. Here she is now very much in rest and posing mode. Here she presents her more feminine aspect. I hope you find her as attractive as I do.
My very greatfull and appreciative thanks for the stunning response to the previous shot.

Superb shot, Ron: the detail is immaculate and the colours spot on, and with that catch of light in the eye you have a top class image.

I usually view a kestrel from underneath, when travelling in the car - so nice to see
its true colours and beaty in this superb image.
