Peregrine Falcon Falco peregrinus

The speed of this hunting falcon was incredible and my D500 has no problem nailing her ...

Wow, not an easy shot to get. I agree, I have witnessed many times one of these speed demons flew over my head seems like 100+ MPH.

Nice habitat background. Perfect angle on the bird, revealing its back.

Sweet banking pose and great topside detail, KK. A very good photograph of this speedster.

Great banking pose and eye contact, it's also nice to see some of the habitat.

Great shot- so hard to get. Nice to see the D500 performing so well...in capable hands, of course. :)
