Bedraggled at Dinner
I finally got a chance for a closeup of a kestrel! But wouldn't you know it, the poor thing is soakin' wet. S/he had a meal s/he was eating on the top of the signpost (I won't post the full frontal shot -- it's not for the squeamish!). I was surprised she would stay there in spite of a line of us watching/shooting her. Somebody finally came up and told me I should leave 'cuz she quit eating 'cuz she was too afraid. I'm thinking, they've never been so paralyzed by me that they couldn't fly away from me before. She flew there with her catch -- why can't she fly away with her catch now? What do you think?
