This Peregrine Falcon put on the most amazing show and seemed to be flying just for the sheer joy of it. It reminded me of a Spitfire beating up an airfield as it hurtled about the sky.
It was moving so fast it was difficult to keep it in the viewfinder but by pulling back to 150mm focal length and spinning on the spot I managed to get a few worthwhile shots.
This was my favourite as I managed to get a catchlight in the eye and show the bird with its beak open calling.
(I've cloned out the transmitter and wire from it back.)

An excellent well timed shot
good shot, good timing.
As you say... an amazing display and even better as the bird was doing it for sheer enjoyment rather then chasing the lure.
Brian - You should have got a lot more clicks cos I know how difficult this is. Very well done!! A good picture - glad I did not bet anything
will load a pic of the pere saker that we had. Her name is Bess but my husband has loaned her to a friend who can hunt her - he just flew her to the lure but she is a lovely bird. she was inujured in her first year and spent all winter indoors so I got quite attached to her. As much as is poss with a bird of prey. It is just a static pic as I did not get any good pics in flight - with all that opportunity too.
Thanks for taking time to leave comments Neil, Graeme, Miles and Sue.
You need to get a small, lightweight camera + cheap lens for flight shots Sue - maybe we should consider a swop?
