We saw so much on our walk yesterday. My camera was clicking 100 clicks a minute. I can only share so much at a time, but fortunately, I have a lot to share for quite some time to come. I will keep sharing all my nature photos as long as you are interested in seeing them. Beauty is all around us, everywhere. We all need more beauty in our lives. We all need to connect with Mother Nature more too. She offers us so much.
We don’t see that many American Kestrels around, but this time, not only did we see one, we saw two, and a mating pair at that. The female is not as brightly colored as the male. They were both perched up high on a pole, but I was still able to get some very good shots of them.
This is the male.
He was up there first, then his partner came along too.
American Kestrels are part of the falcon family. They are pretty popular here in Colorado, though you can find them throughout most of the united States. They like to breed anywhere there are dead trees with nest holes. This pole looks like a perfect spot for them based on where they typically like to hang out.
Have a great day. Beauty is everywhere. You just have to look for it to find it.
