Kestrel in Paris

After publishing about birds in Paris, I had to give you examples of an immediate application: I went to the bois de Vincennes which is at the South East end of Paris, a large public area where many people go for jogging, walking or cycling. And with the help of Fabrice and Christian, I met with several interesting birds including a Common Kestrel and some Eurasian Jays.

Let’s start with the nice little kestrel.

Since I wanted to play with the framing of the bird, first, 3 panoramas (both vertical and horizontal), then 2 squares.
