|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Falco peregrinus - the peregrine falcon is not too common in Switzerland, so I was very happy to see a pair during my holyday in the west of our country (Jura). It was very cold, my fingers were very rigid and the birds flew fast - so the picture is not really sharp. I cropped it and sharpend it a bit.|
Hope you like it.

I'm gonna give you a big smile for this one. We have a family of these birds here in Wales and when you do see them it's only a glimpse. Note to everyone: Peregrine Falcons are the fastest bird of prey. They kill other birds by knocking into them at incredible speeds. The birds either die instantly or fall to the ground in shock, I'm not sure which. We found a dead pigeon in one of our garden's trees recently. Pierre: I dunno how you managed to capture this, but well done.
Nice action shot, Pierre.
