    Note: The subject is fully wild and completely unconstrained. Besides the potential impact of my presence, nothing has been done to intentionally alter or affect the ongoing behaviour of the subject.

    The mouse is dead and bred for snakes and I cannot see any difference between this and using sound recordings. It is now help the food intake for the female who is on the nest with eggs.

    Super shot action and portrait mode well suited. Colours look very natural, focus is absolutely spot on (which of course I am sure you knew!)
    This gentle processing you have adopted suits the Kestrel and circumstances very well.

    Cheers Jon, just kept the DoF to a minimum so its just the head and guts that's in view. Yes you are correct, minimal PP as usual, likewise NR to retain as much detail as possible. Although light was not great, I just like the rather dull colour palette which subdues the whole scene, but now maximising as much detail as possible.... a constant evolution of PP.
