p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Peregrine falcons


Until you see these stunning birds in flight it's hard to imagine just how fast they are. I was lucky enough to see both the male and female at one time and even see them mate. While I did get photos of them mating they were behind too many branches for a good image. That was a constant challenge when they were in the trees yet by moving around I was able to get plenty of clean photos. Included in this set is a wider view of the falcon perched int he tree. The sit so quietly and blend in so well that it's quite easy to walk right past one.

What a beautiful set of images! You seem to have managed to get high enough to be nearly at the same level as the birds. Is that correct? The third image is amusing since the bird makes it clear he (or she) is aware of your presence. Even though you are using a long lens you must have been pretty close. The last three images are my favorites of this set. They seem to be so close and behaviors are interesting and the image detail is excellent.

Hi Morris...

Another great set. Good work in avoiding the tree branches as well as you did.

Thanks

Absolutely gorgeous, Morris!! One of the best, if not the best peregrine series presented on the Forum! The images are tack sharp, and excellent contrast between the dark and light feathers. My favorite is number five. It's an iconic photo of a peregrine portrait, fit for National Geographic!

Lovely shots of the pair Morris. The detail is superb and you certainly managed to avoid lots of the distracting elements. I think it is about time for them to set up house away from the prying eyes and lenses. In the meantime you got some beauties.

Morris:

Stunningly beautiful images with every one worthy of publication. But I like #6 for it's whimsy, showing a fierce predator's softer side... Mike

P.S. The exif data would be educational.
