Patience is a virtue!
It took a long time last year to get a good frame of Lesser Kestrel Female. Patience was tested to a high level. But I was able to successfully make some amazing images. On the other hand Male did not hold back for testing my patience. Each time, he use to tease me by appearing and disappearing. The whole game of cat and mouse was on. After a year of waiting game, when Lesser Kestrels returned, male again decided to continue the unfinished game from last year. I think, he was finally convinced, acknowledging me and presented himself at close range and gave me one of my the best encounters. It was as if he acknowledged my efforts and this is the end result.
