    Had a lucky day last Sat at Bashakill wetlands, NY. A kestrel was very friendly at me and let me took a few shots on him/her. All handhelds using D200 / 300mm F4 / TC 1.4. Thanking for looking.

    Very nice set Yi, especially the landing shot. I've seem some of these guys, but never gotten close enough for a decent shot. Well done. :smile:

    Yi,

    I'm glad you posted these here...maybe she'll turn up again on Saturday? I hope!! Great shots, and I agree with Frank, the landing shot is phenomenal!

  5. WOW! Talk about BEAUTIFUL! I never seem to have my camera handy when I do manage to spot one of these! Wonderful captures!
     
  6. Super captures Yi. The last shot is very nice.

    Nice image of a very fast and flighty bird.
