An American Kestrel shot from too far away.

I brought my 300mm VR lens with my 1.7X teleconvertor today to try to get some better shots of the Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs that were here yesterday.

Alas, no Yellowlegs today. But there was this Kestrel on a far away branch.

To do justice to this shot, I would have needed at least a 500mm F 4 lens plus my 1.7X teleconvertor. But the lens costs about $7500, so better shots at this distance will have to wait.
