Autumn Kestrel on Teasel

Autumn Kestrel on Teasel

This is the same female American Kestrel I posted an image of in which she was perched on a cattail (11/9/15).  As mentioned in the commentary on that shot, I followed the bird about a half mile (slowly in my truck) as it flew from natural perch to natural perch.  Not letting me get very close, this is the beautiful lady on teasel–taken 6 minutes after the other shot, on Nov. 9, 2015. Ridgefield NWR.

5D Mark III, 1/1250, f4, ISO 1250, 500mm, 9:43 a.m.
