Sorry, cant resist. Tried, and failed. As Oscar Wilde said, "I can resist everything but temptation."

Hybrid Falcon







Stoop - when the falcon reaches 800-1000 feet and the pigeon is released, the falcon dives at up to 200mph







Strike! A split second after the falcon hit the white pigeon at high speed

Thanks guys. I hope I havent angered too many of the avid birders posting the falconry pics. I learned that falconers are allowed to trap wild raptors... cant say I like that. Most of their falcons are peregrine/gyrfalcon hybrids from established breeding programs though.

The "Strike!" is a pretty awesome capture Randy! I can't see me tracking a falcon at 200 mph and catching the hit. Interesting set all around too.

BTW, I have no issues with falconry pics or falconry in general. They have rules, I'm good as long as they abide by them. Can't help feeling a little sad for the pigeons though...

Very nice set. I like the stoop best because of the degree of difficulty. Well done.
