Rare Catch

Got this and several others yesterday at Merritt Island FL and have been told sightings of a Peregrine Falcon are quite rare here. Usually no more than one a year.
It's a first for me so I wanted to share it here with my friends.

Sweet Pic !!!!!

The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

Re: Rare Catch

Thanks everyone. Darn near walked by that bird, just saw it
out of the corner of my eye and thought it was an osprey.
Took a shot with the 500 lens, checked it and got the shock of my life. Needless to say many shots were taken then.

Hope to catch up with him again.
