Hi Aykut,
really nice flight shot. Not easy with the speed of flying kestrels. Only change the species name...it's Falco naumanni, which make it for northern european birdwatchers even more special :-)
Well done,

Hi Aykut,
Welcome to TN with a beautiful in-flight shot. Excellent timing, very nice blue sky BG. Great POV. Very well captured.

TN'ye hoşgeldin. Zamanlama müthiş, özellikle kuyruğun duruşu çok güzel,ışık kullanımı çok iyi ve mavi gökyüzü arkada çok güzel bir fon yapmış. Eline sağlık.

very beautiful shot.
it's not easy to take the Lesser kestrel in flight.


Excellent catch! Really sharp and great colours. Amazing action shot.
Welcome on trek nature with this promising picture!! I am curious at you`re second post..

Thanks for sharing

A warm welcome to TN, Aykut.
Wow, what a fantastic POV of this kestrel in flight with prey in talons! I love the fanned out feathers in the tail, and the very dynamic pose of the wings. Eye contact is spot on.
We have an American kestrel that looks like yours. I wonder if they are the same. A note about your bird would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for sharing. : )
