Kestrel BIF

About the only time that I find a Kestrel is when they are hanging out on power lines.  That was the case with this one that I found while leaving San Bernard NWR.  I don’t like having the power lines in my shots so I waited for this guy to take off.   They are fast so I was pleased to keep it in focus.

Taken with Canon 7D and 100-400 lens out the car window

F5.6 @ 1/1000 sec, +1 exp compensation, spot metering, ISO 200

  1. Very nice shot Tim. I especially like the second one…….eyes in focus and wings blurred…….Great action shot.
