Many thanks for your kind comments regarding the kestrel. If you feel like it, I would greatly appreciate hints regarding better approaches to kestrels. Some of you seem to have worked out where the land, I have seen a few close to the ground here and I am still completely puzzled as to the right tactic. Mind you, it took me a year to get a decent shot of a tit Smile

The sun was behind this brown argus last Friday, it seemed to be spotted inside out. I had delayed my break till the sun came out, probably the last butterfly this year! Apart from a cabbage white I saw today from far.

This back lighting is superb -- it raises this well above the typical critter shot.
