    Default Peregrine falcon LRK diary Jan-18

    Had a fantastic sighting of this beauty this time , one of the target species of my LRK trip.
    One of the fastest species in the world, the Falco peregrinus may reach speeds of up to 250 kilometres per hour or more when diving in pursuit of prey.
    Spent almost 2-hrs and the bird was in total comfort.

    Canon 5D M IV , Canon 500mm f/4 IS L USM II with 1.4 canon converter III , 1/2000 , f/5.6 , ISO 640 , Handheld.

    Nice image. Great details. It looks like Saheen Falcon ( Falco peregrinus peregrinator) as it has
    rich rufous underparts. Thanks for sharing. SaktiWild

    You had great luck to sight this bird and also get so much time to observe and photograph it. Nice pose and eye contact. The upward raised wings helps to view the underparts. Nicely captured. Thanks for sharing.

    Nice sighting. I guess it was a bit far. Great to know that the sighting was for a long time. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
