19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Locked on

This wild Common Kestrel (Falco tinnunculus) male was photographed while hovering some 5-7 meters above the ground and locked on a particular spot waiting for a potential prey to come out. This is a typical behaviour of kestrels when they hunt and a beautiful scene to witness.
