Just superb detail and composition! They are beautiful birds but tough on other small birds and are fun to watch as they hunt.

Thanks for posting!

Beautiful shot. I've got a few I chase around Walden Ponds, here in Boulder. They seem more shy than most raptors...

Two beautiful photos of the kestrel. Nice colours and fine sharpness. The second one is my favourite of the two.

Thanks for sharing.

Very nice Kip. The tiny bit of noise in the background (as usual, you used 1 stop less exposure than I did) enhances these shots to my eye.

Incredible captures Kip -

Question . . . the Kestrels here are for all intensive purposes totally unapproachable. We joke if we see one and merely REACH for a camera they are gone, gone, gone! So are you utilizing a blind, a vehicle or 5000000mm lens?

Again truly beautiful shots!

I tried to shoot this guy in his favourite tree early last week and he promptly flew away. Yet mid-week he patiently posed both in the tree and on the vineyard. I think this is the same guy I got last winter in this vineyard - but that was 700mm and cropped and five minutes, this was 500mm full frame and half an hour or more. Ever since Kip and I got these shots there's been a legion of local photographers camped in front of the vineyard - and no sign of the bird.

Jim

That,s the way all Kestrels are they dont like people BUT this Guy just loved to be Photographed and take a look at his Eye.
Jim and I were definitely blessed by the bird Gods.

Excellent... really well done with both of those...

Looking at those... who needs a replacement for the D200 let alone the D300...! still love my D200 even though it is a back up for my D2Xs...

D2Xs + AF20-35mm f2.8 + AF35-70mm f2.8 + AF80-200mm f2.8

Terrific captures here. They are a tough bird for me to get close to. I hope you enjoyed the encounter and now know how special it must have been.

Kip,

I have been a Nikonians member since 2005. These Kestrel images are the best images that I recall ever seeing on this forum. They are just "knock dead gorgeous."

Wow, can't believe I missed this post! The sharpness and clarity are off the charts! Well done! BTW, who needs a D300 or D800 when you've got a D200 still helping to crank out stunners like this?
