It is one of those remarkably marked birds one doesn't get tired of viewing. Fantastic plumage and face markings.

From the catch-light in its eye to the detail in the feathers...a fantastic image, Tom! Love that bug, too! V~

He is a handsome fellow. Pretty user friendly at 15 meters!

Fantastic capture, Tom. I am still hoping to get a clean shot of one of these guys. I'd be happy to get something only half as good as this.

One of my favourite birds, although your kestrel is so different to ours. The detail here is superb!
