I need your input!

Please let me know which photo you like best.  These are all photographs captured with a GoPro2 camera mounted on a Kestrel nest box containing 4 young.  Thanks to Jimmy Walker for allowing me to video tape these animals.

  1. #2 shows the best head shot, especially the eyes and stare. Overall, however I like #4. In #4 you have also captured the eyes and stare, plus the wings are in a much more appealing position. #4 also tells a more complete story: Dinner in hand, wings extended and ready for landing, eyes focused on cavity (final touchdown and home/younguns). All IMO of course.

  2. #4 is a great shot for all the reasons listed above. #3 however, although lacking a good eye shot and wing/tail pattern, seems to capture a hover position. I find the the shape, size and presentation of the prey interesting in this shot.

  3. I really like #2. U get to see the coloration of the animal up close and in great detail. Thanks For sharing!

    • Mark – Your guess on the snake is as good as mine. That is certainly a legit gues. One of the snakes is clearly a ground snake but this one never shows a good look at a diagnostic characteristic. Thanks to all for the feedback! You make blogging fun!
