My closest Kestrel shot

Here's my entry

I got this shot in Britanny, France.

Noticed this kestrel at the other end of a field. Behind was a corn patch. I took some pictures from afar as a "safety net", and then proceeded to enter the corn patch to get closer. I Only moved when the wind was blowing to cover for my noise, and managed to get very close to the bird (5-10 meters, 16-32 feet). Grabbed some shots from a veggie window, and went beck where I came from, without having the bird fly away.

It was a magical moment!
