Canarian Kestrel (Falco tinnunculus canariensis)
When coming down from a long ridge traverse between Morro Veloso and Gran Montaña we took a short stop outside of Betancuria. Suddenly this lady swooped down onto an agave right next to us. She struck the right pose and let herself be photographed before heading onwards.
Make sure to see the glimmer in her eye at full resolution ;-)
