Kestrel about to feed on a Frog

This is a photograph I took of a Kestrel at the Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary close to Gurgaon, Haryana, India. I was at first surprised about why this bird did not fly away, but then later, after taking the snap, when I looked closely, I realised that there was a dead frog on the branch next to the Kestrel. The bird was apparently guarding its meal!
