Peregrine - 10-25-08 vertical dive on Northern Harrier

After being stooped on by the Harrier, the Peregrine went up and up, I followed until he was just a speck in the blue. Suddenly, he balled up and plunged. Here he is turning his head and twisting its tail in a vertical dive, lining up and getting ready to pull a few G's on the finish. The tables had turned quickly. This is the first time I've ever been able to get a shot with one in a full vertical stoop. WOW!!
