Hi everyone, I had a great break but unfortunately came back to a pile of problems. For one, probable redundancy and another being locked out of my own home and the expense of emergency locksmiths. Not a good start. Anyway enough waffle.
I have always wanted to capture a Kestrel hovering but I'm never in the right place at the right time. These are not great shots and have many faults but I was quite pleased just to get them. They are literaturely grab shots, handheld, as the Kestrel only hovers for roughly 10 secs before repositioning or diving so I took the chance they wouldn't be too bad. She did dive as the second shot shows but there is a lot of motion blur, she was so quick, gone in a flash. I didn't see what it was she had caught but probably a vole or chick.
I hope you like them despite the flaws.
Have a great weekend, I have to work, but maybe it will be my last for a while, who knows, I will find out next week.
Please improve them if you can, mods are always welcome as my PS skills are not great.
