'catchlight' | by d-lilly ~ on and off for awhile
Back to group


I wanted to do a follow-up on my Kestral that I posted the other day, yes, I did go back. As I sat on this point admiring the scenic view, it didn't take long for this guy to appear on top of this pole...I slowly made my approach and stood still getting a few shots before he took off. I realized that if I moved around a foot to the left or right it would really make a difference in the bokeh. His next appearance I did just that. When I repositioned myself on the ground for his next show I must have been sitting for about 45min to l hr when I realized two things were for certain... the sun was setting and my butt had just about all I could take...I left! Hey I got the 'catchlight'
