Paul, John George and Ringo? :)

Please click for shadowbox - the ocean BG is still dark because the sun had not yet risen high enough over cliff to hit it.  These guys were newly fledged and was the only time I saw all four siblings out and sitting close enough together for a family shot.  Once these future killing machines got going, they were all over the place!

It must have been difficult to try and figure out how to shoot the group scene. It came out great. All the birds look sharp to my eye and them hanging on the cliff adds good drama IMHO. Cool factor A plus.

Great stuff Lynn. One of the first things that pops out at me are the catch lights in the eyes. Pretty amazing, I think the 'Jostens' school portrait photographer had a hard enough time getting one kid to look at the camera and you got 4 peregrine to look over at you. Well done
Thanks for looking,
Michael Ashbee

Amazing shot Lynn. I rarely get single shot of Peregrine Falcon and you have whole family picture :-). I love the detail and colors, nicely done.

Iv'e got three of these guys together but four is a killer score!! Great that we can see them well without much shadowing and they all have nice head angles and catchlights. Nice to see big sister in the middle of her little brothers. Great frame Lynn and look forward to seeing you out there in a few months.

Beautiful shot and opportunity. The dark background water worked out really well and really highlights the family! Congradts!
