Grey Kestrel

Grey Kestrel

Mara Triangle, Masai Mara, Kenya

The small, compact Grey Kestrel flies towards a frequented perch with a small mouse in it's talons. I was incredibly lucky to have captured this bird in flight with prey in talons, and together with a slowish shutterspeed, the wing blur created quite a nice effect showing motion. The Masai Mara is home to many raptors, but this surely is one of my favourite photographs of all raptors captured in the area.
