Female American Kestrel takes flight

With a snowstorm quickly approaching, I knew I wouldn’t have much chance for picture taking this weekend so yesterday I made a quick tour along one of my favorite raptor routes. The clouds were already arriving and lighting was tough but I knew I would not be happy if I didn’t at least get a few pictures.

Among the cooperative subjects was this pretty little falcon. She didn’t want to sit and pose but did give me a few nice flight shots. With the tough lighting, I overexposed the image a bit and increased the highlights creating a ‘high key’ effect with the light background. Otherwise it would have been a very dull gray.

I’ll be going stir crazy today and likely tomorrow too as this storm works its way through. I would have much preferred it hit during the week when I am at work and couldn’t be out taking pictures anyway. 😉
