I left the office early this afternoon at about 2:45 and had only been driving about 5 minutes. In the distance ahead of me, I could see two crows perched near the top of a 50 ft. tree and as I got closer noticed they were looking down at something. About 15 feet below sat this peregrine, resting in the dark winter afternoon in preparation for the last hunt of the day.
I have taken hundreds of peregrine pictures over the past 25 years in Labrador, Nova Scotia and British Columbia. I never tire of their beauty, their zest for life and celebrate each bird with my lens when ever and where ever I can.
