[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The name "peregrine" means wanderer. They reach sexual maturity after a year and mate for life. Population of these birds depleted between 1950-70 due to the use of the chemical DDT.

The Peregrine Falcon was removed from the endangered list in 1999.

Good detail in this almost extreme close up. Background works well to keep the attention on the subject.
