American Kestrel

Beautiful little birds, the American Kestrel is the smallest of the falcon family with a size of 9-12 inches. I watched the first one hunting the side of a road, repeatedly watching for prey and then moving on to the next sign post after each catch. The gold background is a field of Woodland Sunflowers in bloom.

I realize the lighting conditions on this were not optimal, but I am totally drawn to the graphic quality of the branch patterns.
