The juvenile Peregrine Falco peregrinus, spreading his wings.
Taken in totally different light that his previous image.

Many thanks to Ronnie (RonnieAG), Geoff (FeatherFriend) & Alan (Alan_Baseley), for their generous awards given to my previous upload

Early start tomorrow (around 4.00 am), to meet up with old friends and hopefully a shedload of Silver-studded BluesWink

I'm lichen this exceedingly fine raptor portrait very much indeed Adie. So you are meeting up with Lou and Nigel at Prees Heath then, you'd better remember to pack your suncream and insect repellant then, the biting bugs are out in force at the moment!
