Super, sharp shot Nathan, looks like we both had the same idea today and went for bird close-ups.

Peregrines are such magnificent birds, there speed and acrobatics (aerobatics?) are second to none. Great shot mate.

A spectacular portrait of this beautiful avian predator, Nathan.
The detailing is something to aspire to.
I couldn't get your link to open for me, but copied and pasted it (which removed the http://) & was amazed to find that, amongst others, pigeon fanciers are guilty of targetting both Peregrine's and Sparrowhawks.

Great close-up Nathan.
Nice detail especially the eye reflections.
Whites are just a little blown. Try using -2/3 EV compensation when taking shots in bright sunlight.
