Re: 5 of a Kestrel, hovering

All I can say is...Wow!  Terrific shots of the hovering Kestrel.  Great exposures, super color, and lots and lots of detail.  Where were the shots taken?  Handheld, monopod, tripod used?

Congrats on a terrific series.

Cheers,

Gary

Why is it that all birds seem turn the wrong way?  Very well done to get the head in good focus.

Lol, yes I was on a cliff and had a good line with the Kestrel, very lucky.
