On the whole page of thumbs, this drew my attention first. An unusual portrait of the world's fastest diving birds. I was once next to a squirrel that vanished with a loud thump. Sounded like a jet noise just before the poor thing vanished.
This is one handsome looking high speed pilot. TG

Beautiful love it, had one do a stoop into my garden where a group of collar doves were feeding, he/she let out a shrill screech plummeting towards earth, the birds flew up in a fan shape and the Falcon hit one at about sixty miles and hour, it was dead on impact never seen that before amazing. nice photo regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Lovely bird and shot. The eyes are a bit dark though. A couple of highlights added would greatly improve this I think. Paul
