Here are some of my additional edits from my 2014 season of photographing Peregrine Falcons in New Jersey and New York states.


1) Adult coming in for a landing:

3) Another flyby of the day:

I really enjoyed this series. It looks like you were fairly close to the birds. I would be curious how you were able to know the location to place a hide to find several birds this close.

Wow and awesome seems to be the best words here. Great work Greg. Who got lucky in #4, the falcon or you? ;) And Number 2 on your favourite perch....I see why. I'd sit there all day for a shot like that!

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.
