Beauty on a Stick ~ Camera Critters #157

Beauty on a Stick

(c) Misty DawnS

I thought I had seen a Kestrel sitting in the tree outside my bedroom window a couple times. I told my buddy (*waving* Hi Bear) what I thought it was and that I was going to get a photo. It just proves that setting a goal makes things happen, because a few days later, I got this photograph. I know that American Kestrels may be common, but this was the first one I had seen, let alone photographed. So, even if it's not a great photo, it has a lot of meaning for me.
