Another bit of wildlife today. This obliging male Peregrine is in fact called Loki, and was supplied from a local bird of prey centre for a location shoot in the Cairngorms.

A handsome chap and a real poser! V2 in the heather.

I hope you like it.

And thanks to all those who commented and voted on Win Hill yesterday, totally overwelmed by that one.

Two superb shots elegantly presented - number 1 has the feel of and illustration in an old book, number 2 is arty. I love them both.

Beautiful bird, isn't he? And two absolutely splendid images to boot. Wonderful eye contact, and super use of dof. I'm not going to choose between, I love both - but for different reasons. Not so much your usual offering on epz, but every bit as much of you!
