12202 kestrel

This shot was taken at Strumpshaw fen,it was for sure a very lucky encounter,the Kestrel was up a tree about 30 feet away,sat there for quite a while looking around,then it flew straight towards me, landing behind me on the path,it was just at the edge of focus,the frame after this shot was to close and the kestrel pulled a worm from the ground,at this point it was 12 feet away and was way to close for my 600.as you can see in this shot it's right foot it just out of focus.
