Bom dia Jose,
Beautiful photo of this common kestrel, taking off. Great timing. Nice natural colours and excellent sharpness.
Have a good weekend,

Hello Jozay,

Hope you are well. What an elegant shot of great beauty!The kestrel taking off in such a majestic fashion is marvellous. These falcons are all very graceful birds, Jozay.This little falcon is no exception, the grace is there and the plumage has been captured in an impressive way. Thanks for sharing, take care.

warm regards / Abid
