Riding a Wave

An American Kestrel seemingly rides a wave of clouds in Ramona Grasslands and convinces me I need a longer lens.

Made me smile. Love the positioning for the wave. I've never photographed a Kestrel, so I envy you that. As for the need for a longer lens... that can be a slippery slope depending on your willpower and budget. Even so, though, I've never regretted purchasing any of my longer lenses. I think I see more in telephoto and have to work harder to compose with wide angle lenses. That's why some days I leave the long lenses at home and go out with just a wide angle, to force myself to learn to see with it. But of course, then I'm presented with a scene like this one and find myself wishing I had the longer lenses... :-)
