Default Rock Kestrel

Hi

As we were driving down the road I spotted this Rock Kestrel on the fence on the side of the road. After about half an hour of creeping I managed to get close enough for this shot.


Shot with FUJIFILM FinePix S5700 S700 at f/3.5 and 1/750 sec at ISO 200


Any comments and how could I do better next time


Thanks


Gary

When I look at a photograph, it is judge by my eye. The main subject looks great, but that stream of bird s**t on the post would have to go in my humble opinion....

The stream of bird S**t is actually a glare from the sin on the shiny silver pole. I get the point though so thanks
