Hungry Kestrel

I snapped this AMERICAN KESTREL recently enjoying a grasshopper. Delicious. As you can tell from each of the photos, I've been messing with the settings on my Canon camera. It's trial and error to be sure, but hopefully I'm learning.The Kestrel is, far and away, one of my most favorite birds. Rarely will they perch so close for any period of time, so getting the chance to take these photographs was a real treat.As you can see from the photo below, this guy doesn't eat the legs.Looks scrumptious, doesn't it?Ok, one more photo. It's the last one, I promise... of the Kestrel anyway.This time I'm absolutely serious.

You'll enjoy this one for it's poetic quality. I really thought this PIED-BILLED GREBE looked like a real tough customer swimming alongside the CANADA GEESE.Best,
