Thanks John. He was more willing to sit there than most of these guys.

Yeah they are either streaking across the sky or on a wire or utility pole! But even on a wire they are 2 really nice shots Ian. :)

Wire or not, they sure are cute! And yes, cute fits this bird in my opinion!

Beautiful shots of this bird. The first one is my favorite and I do mind the wire at all. The bird is just beautiful!

Yup, kestrels are still very elusive to me. A few times I saw them, they were so far away that they might as well be in the next zip code.

You did well, Ian.

Thanks much Craig. I missed three or four on the same road that took off as I approached.

Thanks Carol, one of my faves when it comes to colours and cuteness.

Now a real talented PP'er could clone out the wire and replace it w/ an attractive pine bough. Not me, of course, but somebody;) Excellent shots, Buddy!
