Excellent aerial of this Peregrine carrying it prey off to enjoy in peace (lol). Lucky you! TFS JJ!

Well, you know what I think about Peregrines JJ. They're the supreme product of evolution (let's leave humanity out of it). This image gives me chills. The detail is excellent, and you must have been very quick with the camera to catch this shot. Wow!

{edit: You mention Skylarks. I once watched a Merlin chasing one, exactly following every twist and turn of the lark. The books say that's what Merlins do, but I only witnessed it once. Fantastic].
