Friday's Foto

Floyd Bennett Field's managed grasslands are a perfect location for finding the beautiful American Kestrel. NPS signs posted around the field's perimeter are a convenient perch for these small falcons. I've been hoping to capture this image for a long time. I watched this female hovering above the grass, diving down to capture  prey, then returning to the sign to dine on juicy crickets.
