    || THE BIRD IN MY STORY ||

    Master of his own destiny and blessed with the enviable gift of flight – AMERICAN KESTREL (male)
    It was a fine afternoon when I saw this Kestrel from a distance perched on an unusually small tree probably in search of potential meadow voles for his meal. Usually as everyone knows that these little raptors are by far the hardest raptor in flight and bursts away in the most unpredictable flight pattern giving no hint of their take off if they see one approaching in their direction. Fortunately, I was at the right time near him while he was perched so that I could compose myself and take a portrait of him while he swayed on this slender branch.
