Sunrise on the American Kestrel male this morning, a few minutes before he and the female mated on their favorite roof-top pipe.

    Jeeze Louise what a perfect shot. Rich colors glowing in the sun.

      Yes, this dawn light REALLY brings out the colors of this male. (No filter here, as the kids say.) He was pumping his tail up and down so I kept the shutter going in an effort to capture it in the “down” position.
