Description:

I was photographing the burnt vegetation in this area when I found this Kestrel disemboweling its catch in the bare tree. I would never have noticed it if I hadn't been standing still and quiet enough to hear its talons scraping the dry bark. I had been walking close to the tree for some time before I noticed the Kestrel, but it was only when I took and interest in it that it became wary of me and eventually flew off.
