Photo Friday – Peregrine Falcon and a Pigeon

Fridays have occasionally been a place for ‘fun photos,’ hence the usual ‘Fun Photo Friday’ title.  What follows is definitely amazing photography, but I’m a little reluctant to call it ‘fun.’  Incredible, gripping, fascinating – yes.  Fun?  Noooot really. This peregrine falcon apparently had little trouble catching it’s prey, a pigeon, this morning on the […]
