Keeping out of troubles





After the female kestrel had called it a day after the fight with the crows at Tipperne, she needed a rest in some bushes nearby. And who was also hiding out of sight of the crows? The male kestrel of course. Being wise he decided to keep a low profile until all was quiet again. After having relocated to a higher branch, he was quite relaxed as he let me get really close, maybe within 10 m, before he had had enough of the crazy photographer and flew away. The last of the photos is un-cropped and taken with my 500mm lens at its longest focus length.
