I have always thought that raptors in the SW are far more approachable, generally, than they are up north. I don't know why this is, but on our recent trip, I got closer to two American kestrels than ever before. The second shot is virtually full-frame.

Nicely done Al, I can attest to the fact that they seldom let you get close in south Fl. Jealous of your efforts and success

These are fantastic, Al. Think he was sizing you up in #2.
