I was looking at the snow covered mountains through my 500mm lens when a Peregrine appeared right in the middle of the viewfinder far, far away. I followed it as it accelerated closer and realised a poor Great Egret was casually cruising over the water. It seemed the falcon had the egret in its sights as it rocketed towards it. I followed the falcon through my viewfinder and put the peddle of the Nikon D500 to the floor at 10 frames a second, but only captured two frames with both subjects. One frame is out of focus, which left me with this one. The egret must have heard the air tearing behind it and it baulked frantically and the Peregrine pulled out of the attack and followed through, disappearing over the wetlands in seconds. I thought 10 frames a second was fast, but now I want 14. For Mali. Thanks for remembering me after 3 1/2 years.
