Kestrel

It`s not very often I see a male Kestrel perched, saw this in the top fields at Portland yesterday, I was able to get quite close to it, All of a sudden it launched towards me and started to hover within a few feet, it was so close I had to pull back to less than 300mm on the lens, because it happened so quick it turned into a grab shot, I didn`t expect it at all, still the results were these next 2 shots
