Hello everyone. First I would like to thank for all the comments, likes and faves in my previous images. They are much appreciated.

Thank you!


This is one of the images that illustrates a little project I've been doing since September when I found an American Kestrel couple around my neighborhood and finally managed to get close enough to shoot.

They were nesting inside of a deactivated kitchen exhaust duct of the eighth floor apartment and I managed to shoot from the same building, more precisely from the stairs windows. It gave me an excellent view of their favorite perches and some good view of their nest considering the urban factor!

Here is the link to the video (may contain some strong predatory scenes):

I hope you like it!

Best regards,
