American Kestrel Eating a Praying Mantis

IMG_2833-1
We spent our lunch hour on the side of a closed North Arlington landfill on Thursday, and so did this American Kestrel.

Our lunch was forgettable, but the kestrel's …  the falcon dined on a delicacy, in flight.

As the bird first came into view, we could see that it had something in its talons. We were so busy trying to photograph the bird that we did not make out what it was carrying.

It was only we downloaded the photos that we saw the meal  — a Praying Mantis.

Like humans, kestrels sometimes need to eat lunch on the fly.  IMG_2837-2

    I am sure my boyish style back then was anything but inspiring (I really need to find a picture so we can share a laugh), but athletic clothes have become so fashionable since then. There are so many styles, cuts, and color variations available that you have just as much selection shopping for active wear as with anything else. Personally I love a little color when it comes to my fitness attire. I am obsessed with these leggings. I just ordered the pink pair (color: hyper punch) too! They are so soft its like having pajamas on. Im also loving this bright pair. One tip Ive found in mixing brights and patterns is choosing one print as your base.http://www.dragon-kicks.net If Im wearing a printed bottom I go for a solid top (or vice versa). So for todays look I went with a striped zip up and unified it with solid leggings. Pay attention to the accents already in your pieces and tie those colors in other places (i.e the neon yellow nike check in the jacket C I repeated the color in my sports bra and pants). Take time to find a work out outfit you love. You want to pick pieces you are excited to wear so you are more inclined to get ready and go do active things!
