"Lunch Time!" (Nankeen Kestrel with captured field mouse)

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Nathan Piesse

After searching around for most of the day with little success, I luckily had managed to spot this female Nankeen Kestrel hovering conveniently near a beach carpark along the metropolitan coastal road. Fortunately this kestrel seemed oblivious to the local human traffic and was quite focused on grabbing her afternoon meal. To my surprise, I only discovered this shot after emptying my memory card (and emptying my shoes from beach sand) when I got home a couple of hours later!.

Location: Marmion Beach, Perth, Western Australia
