Not many creatures have so much potential food in their larder. SUperb that you caught the falcon like this.

Fabulous having the peregrine in the shot. He seems to be very picky. Amazing amount of birds captured Ron............Sandy

An amazing image, and a beautiful capture of the hunter in motion against the mass of prey.

You spotted the potential and created a very clever composition that illustrates perfectly the effect of the peregrine on the flock. Superb stuff Ron.
