Picture of the Day - "American Kestrel Portrait" - May 16, 2017

Today when we were out in our normal drive around, we spotted this guy. He was perched on a wire at first and then flew over to the top of this tree. Although the sky was not that inviting, I still like the composition as the bird is slightly looking towards the camera and not showing us his backside......lol.  Such a pretty little raptor. Taken with Canon 7D Mk ll & Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM + Canon 1.4x lll teleconverter @490mm.
