Hi friends
This falcon lesser kestrel (female), it inhabits open country and may be found even near human habitations as well as in absolutelly barren land. Whole colonies of nesting birds may be seen in clay bajks, cliffs, and even villages. Sometimes, these colonies comprise onlu a few, at other times as manu as a hundred pairs, all of which find adecuate food within a farly small range. They catch mainly locust, grasshoppers, beetles, butterflies and other insects, but will also eat small vertebrates and reptil.

I hope do you like, best regards.

Hola [email protected]

Os presento a una hembra de cernícalo primilla que tuve la ocasión de poder fotografiar la semana pasada, esta especie de pequeño halcón pero precioso vive formando colonias y normalmente están asociados a las construcciones humanas. Se alimentan en campo abierto de pequeños insectos como escarabajos, mariposas, saltamontes y otros insectos al igual de que de pequeños mamíferos y reptiles, espero que os guste.

En mi web hay más fotos e información sobre esta especie, www.jorgerubio.es

Espero que os guste y un saludo a [email protected]

Hola Jorge.
Sin lugar a dudas esta es una muy bella imagen. Podria decirte que es con lo que todo exelente fotografo sueña con tener en su Galeria. Alta calidad en fotografia Jorge.
Un saludo y un abrazo.

Vaya toma Jorge ... que viene a enriquecer la ya de por sí selecta y elegante galería que tienes. Evidentemente el encuadre es efectivo; esa desposición de la rama es estupenda. Interesante (y efectivo) tratamiento del color. Un bello trabajo.
