American Kestrel

2016-05-14 - Kestrel 004

Trying to get a photo of a female American Kestrel in flight was pretty difficult. This one was done indoors in front of a black background (which was not very long across). She was really talkative and so fast. The first time she few across not one of us took a shot, it happened too quick, but after that we all started snapping in an attempt to catch her in flight and in focus! I have seen these beauties out along the back roads of the Waterloo Region, but only ever managed to get stationary photos of them. I am proud of these two in flight shots, though I know there is always room for improvement.
