THE QUEST FOR THE PEREGRINE FALCON DAY 2
MICHAEL http://www.pbase.com/kingfisher AND I DECIDED TO GIVE IT ONE MORE TRY TO FIND THE FALCON. WE WALKED THE BEACH FOR ABOUT 1.5 MILES AND NO FALCON.
ON OUR WAY BACK HE WAS KIND ENOUGH TO FLY RIGHT OVER OUR HEAD AND PERCH IN THE SHADE, THIS IS THE SHOT WHEN HE LEFT THE SHADY PERCH TO FIND ANOTHER SUNNIER PLACE.
MICHAEL HAD THE CHALLENGE TO TAKE PICTURES OF THE BIRD AND KEEP AN EYE ON THE INCOMING WAVES :)

Nice capture Herb. I can just imagine how excited you guys were when you saw the falcon. It's amazing what photography does to a person ... sometimes the littlest surprises make me ecstatic when I am able to capture that moment with my camera :-)
