    Peregrine Falcon - this bird was hunting along the cliffs at my local (ish) seabird colony. It gave me a somewhat intimidating, long, hard look as it passed. Those talons are ridiculously oversized. (A faster shutter speed would have frozen all movement).

    Peregrine Falcon - on Alaskan Cruise Ship

    Starting on August 8th we took an Alaskan Cruise on the Norwegian Sun from Vancouver BC to Seward Alaska. We had a peregrine falcon that had hitched a ride. This picture is from the second day of the cruise when the falcon was following the boat as we were out to sea. We saw it multiple times...
