Photos of birds, fish, flowers and miscellaneous things that catch my eye and instill a sense of wonder.

Female American Kestrel Falco sparverius
Female American Kestrel, Falco sparverius, at the Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve, resting on barbed wire while scanning the grass below for grasshoppers, lizards and other small prey. It always amazes me how birds leisurely lounge on barbed wire without ever apparently getting poked. I've even seen birds on Chollas cactus (for example, the cactus wren), which is no small feat.
