My wife and I were able to take a day off to do some photography while we were in Europe this summer. We drove to Neusiedler See in Austria - a well known wetland mecca for birders. Of course it being September we didn't see much! But our guide gave us a good location for photographing Kestrels, which I really, REALLY wanted to photograph. It was in the middle of a private vineyard (nobody chased us off the property) and there were 3-4 Kestrels in the area. They seemed quite skittish (as Raptors usually are) so we weren't able to get too close, so these pictures will have to do for now!
