Peregrine Falcon

fast action

Viewed 34 Times

Peregrine Falcons are on of the fastest birds around.. They fly well over 100MPH when diving in for a kill.. I was shooting this one on the ground when it quickly took to the air and flew right towards my direction.. I knew time was essential and did not adjust my shutter speed to match the bird.. Instead I panned with the bird at lower shutter speed.. this blurs out the background and gets the subject sharp… It’s situations like this that pays off practicing all types of photography skills in my past.

That’ such a great eye to eye look. Pretty amazing you got a sharp eye at 1/500.
