Male Kestrel [Falco tinnunculus]

I took these at the International centre of the Birds of Prey, it was so easy. I have been going so many times, I can't missed it.

  19. Gorgeous portrait of this beautiful raptor, Bob!
    Obviously it was a little hot during your shooting, I assume that's the reason the kestrel lifts his wings...
    Have a great week with many pleasant encounters,
    Uwe.
