This one was the first of two and perched on this wire for a long time, letting me take all the shots I wanted. I didn't pressure this Kestrel to the point it would leave. It was such a great opportunity, I didn't want to throw it away.
This was the second one I photographed. I inched as close as I could, but unfortunately nervousness gave way to flight.
