[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another image of a member of the Kestrel family nesting in the little spot of forest just on my doorstep.
We are now in the midst of the hot summer months and now and then I still see these beautiful birds. I've also noticed lately a larger bird of prey circling above the trees but as of yet haven't managed to capture an image.

Hi David,

An exceptional capture of this Kestrel in a lovely setting. The Kestrel is wonderful - lovely pose and facial expression. Beautiful colors, fine details, and a magnificent composition with that foliage.

Hi David,
Nice capture, sharp and well composed!
And really lucky to have such neighbours!!

Hi David,
Excellent shot!
I like so much the sharpness of the image, the lighting and the clear details got on the bird's plumage.
It works pretty well the composition made, surrounded by all that branches.
Well done and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Great shot David.
Perfect composition with excellent sharpness and lighting wonderful color contrast, feather details and catch light in the eye of the bird.
A real joy to look at with in my opinion one small disturbance, and that is the small twig, middle right hand side, pointing at the Kestril.
Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards,

Perfect setting, lighting and composition! A superb image!
