I tried to locate the Kestrel again today and did. However, it wasn't playing ball today - only 7 shots gained and only two of them in focus - this is one of them!! I was so pleased it lauched itself directly towards me!! Hope you like it!!

Many thanks for your votes on my Kestrel image Yesterday - thanks also to Colleen and Carol on their User Awards - All appreciated greatly!!

Have a great day

Bill
