CommentOut at Ganteaume point at the crack of dawn, my family and I (i'm 14) were somewhat underwhelmed by the dinosaur footprints we had come out to see, however the two very active resident kestrels more than made up for this disappointment. We jokingly set up a competition to see who could capture a kestrel with the moon in the same frame (the prize being chocolate of course), however it was only once I uploaded this photo to my computer the irony of all this. I had accidentally captured this beautiful photograph with the moon- only the moon was out of focus!
EquipmentTaken with my Canon 1300D with 75-300mm telephoto zoom lens at 210mm focal length. ISO 100, shutter speed of 1/1500s, f/5.6, with 0.7 exposure bias.
LocationBanteaume point, Broome (Western Australia)
