Kestrel Hunting

Kestrels are small, fast and hard to photograph.  I observed this one hunting in a field and, because I was about 100 yards away, it did not depart as soon as I stopped  with my camera.  The following photos show the hunt sequence as the kestrel pursued a mouse sized meal...

Thanks for letting me share this moment with you.  Stop back soon.
