Taken in Michigan's Eastern Upper Peninsula from my van.
Bird was hunting roadside ditches for voles during spring snow melt; snow reflected the sun to light its underside.

What a beautiful Kestral image, Paul. The pose, the light, and the detail are excellent. I love how the reflected light off the snow illuminates the underside of this good-looking raptor. Very nice.
