peregrine falcon

By brrttpaul
just adding this to show one of the adult peregrines doing its fly by as some seem to think my pic is of a kestrel lol. I watched this bird drop a rabbit to the fledgling earlier, and will be watching them again today. i know its not the best just want to show its not a kestrel as some seem to think.

I know nothing about birds whatsoever, but what I do know is this is a rather flighty creature, thus very difficult to catch. Well done,

Regards Nathan

Try a faster lens, invest in better lenses and you'll be rewarded.
If you wish to do wildlife and especially birds of this stature you need a good lens and a long one too.
600mm is a good start, if you go 400mm you'll wish you had 600mm.
I recommend the sigma 120-300mm f2.8 os apo dg hsm with 2x converter to give 600mm f5.6, a superb and underestimated lens.
