Found 3 on Saturday, had fun photographing these birds of prey in flight. Here is one of about 500, thanks for looking.

Hello Rob,
If this is the measuring-staff of the quality of your photos than I'm your fan.
Fantastic start here on TN. Congratulations. The pose is gorgeous. Sharpness, details and the clear colors are excellent. I hope to see a lot more.
Regards,
Peter

Welcome to TN, Rob. This is an amazing shot! Excellent stop-action of a dramatic pose. Your exposure is right on, and the clear blue sky is a lovely backdrop for this beautiful bird.

Thanks for sharing!

Hello Rob,
Welcome to TN!
You make a flying start:) with this excellent in-flight full-frame capture of a female Prairie Falcon. The sharpness, lighting, timing and composition are all excellent.
I see this bird has been ringed. Is it wild or a display falconry bird? If she is wild then this shot is even more fantastic!
Thanks for sharing this,
Ivan

Hi Rob. Firstly welcome to TN. This is a fine picture to start with. Its an amazing inflight shot with sharp focusing and fine detail in the open wings. All with natural colours. I would be interested to know if this was in the wild. Well done TFS.
Nick..

I shall look forward to some more from you.

Hi Rob

Welcome to TN!

Excellent debut!

A great photo, with a very interesting POV. Impressive results from a completely frozen bird in a spectacular maneuver. 1/2000s have rendered such a superb result!

Greetings & TFS!
