Well, we get murmurations here, they are wonderful, but that stuff, with the falcons, is beyond amazing. My jaw was agape. Thanks for sharing, Skip!

Incredible. How'd he manage to get that razor-sharp focus on the falcon?!

He'll be using a top-of-the-line-type Canon or Nikon pro body with incredibly good tracking focus, and he'll be VERY experienced at using it. He was probably focused on that falcon a couple seconds earlier and just fired off a LONG burst, tracking the bird as it dove. Easy-peasy, right? :-)

Nature is incredible and the ability to capture it in this way is a gift.

LOL, yeh, at 100+ miles per hour! BIF photography taken to another level. That one with the falcon in full dive is just... incredible.
