Kestrel Hunts in the Rain

A kestrel sits on a post during a rain shower.

This female kestrel has just finished a meal and is looking for another.  I assume she has better places to roost when it is raining, but it had been raining for a long time and she probably needed to eat.

    I love the clarity and color, and of course the rain, but also how the kestrel is intent on its hunting rather than on you.

    That’s a real beauty, Jim! A great concentrated pose, and I really like the water drops too.

    Yup – I’m with Coles – great portrait, but how fun to catch the rain drops!

  5. Great shot, especially with the rain drops! I’m curious as to how you protect your equipment in wet weather?
