Photographer's Note

A Kestrel was hovering over an object in an open field, like standing in the air, extracting a full zoom to take it's special technique doing this.
Many times I saw kestrels hovering at distance, but this time it was very close, relatively speaking.
The tail used as a rudder to balance its body on air, in the attached picture from long ago, the tail shown in an upwards view.
