The Kestrel's about

By FeatherFriend
Hi all,

Not much about in my patch in the way of birds so I've been to Marwell Wildlife centre, a short drive from Southampton Blush I was fortunate enough to witness a Kestrel hovering directly above when the shot was taken, a wonderful sight indeed but the Meerkat wasn't taking any chances and disappeared rather quickly Wink
Many thanks for the votes and comments on my last upload and a special thank you to PattiW for the UA, really appreciated,

Lovely image Geoff.
Good fine detail and tones in the fur, with a nice catch light in the eye also.
Like the upward POV, but would have preferred a little more space above it's head.

This is what a Meerkat should look like - most Meerkat photos on here are of fat grannies Smile Excellent capture !

Delightful capture, Geoff. Fine detail and great POV. Very well isolated by those softly blurred bg tones.
