A bit after sunrise this female American Kestrel started her warmup and stretch for a busy day.

my volunteer back for some more.. playing around trying to learn to optimize.. seems to be correct that higher ISO is better than wide open aperture. This time 840mm via sigma 150-600C + Sigma 1.4x TC with EF-RF adapter on R5 and then cropped and edited some via On1 2022

lil guy likes 2 different perches hence the blue vs green.. fairly consistent on these.

took lots of photos to get his irridescent colours to show up.. they're very directional and maybe seems to be able to control it to some extent?

Great shot! The bird, the colors and detail and even that branch!
