p.1 #1 · Peregrine Falcon on the hunt (6)


I have been going through and cleaning up drives lately and stumbled on a folder of PF images that I had processed but never posted. These are from almost 3 years ago on a day that Ant and Conrad came up to visit just to shoot these guys. Most of the local FM gang was there, Tom, Bonnie, Jay, Bruce and Larry are the names that most of you would recognize. As you'll see all but the last are the Falcon flying through a flock of Dunlins hoping for breakfast. There was a male and a female that hunted together. They did fail more often than not but in the end they always got one. The last shot is the Falcon in the process of administering the death bite right after the catch.

Oh these are beauties Tim, that "old" camera worked pretty good. They are all great but #5 sure tells the story. That one makes me feel panicky The last is just awesome.

Wow, these images are breath taking Tim, how you got the falcon in focus in the middle of those birds is just amazing. Superb!

Superb set Tim. The first one is pretty neat, looking through a flock of birds and getting focus on the falcon. Curious to know how you did that.
