PERPETUATING THE SPECIES

NANKEEN KESTREL

FALCO CENCHROIDES

Early spring rise, sound of the surf, sandy trails, crafty disguise, sand dune position, excruciating patience, bird calls, incredible blue sky, gentle breeze, mindfulness, and the never-ending brilliance and wonder of nature. Finally the planets aligned and I was so fortunate to photograph two nankeen kestrels perpetuating the species.
