It must be fun to watch the peregrine chasing the pigeon.

Looks like a fun time Randy. I've got a contact who is supposed to let me know when the next local falconry event is - I can't wait...

Just a warning - if you have 500 or 600 mm it will be hard to get the bird in frame during lure flying and the closer passes at sky trials, they are REALLY FAST. I reverted to a 300 mm and got more shots of the lure flying, and used the 600 mm for distant sky trials/ pigeon attacks. Still had to shoot a ton of frames to get any in focus.
