This Falcon I had the opportunity to shoot on a couple of occasions and I could not get over how he hovered for me and I am not sure you see that too often. This guy is superfast, only behind the Peregrine Falcon.
I have heaps of images, tried to pick my favorites:
This one I shot on an overcast day - but it still holds appeal for me.
Wow, they are terrific Shelley. I love the flight poses in them. In the second and third he almost looks like he is eyeballing you. What a fabulous capture! He is a stunning looking bird.

The second shot screams eye contact! What a cracker.
Great to see a full display of feathers on the wings and tail. Thanks for sharing.

Awesome, Pity about the sky in the last one, would've been a fantastic shot otherwise, but still catching it in action is truelt remarkable.

WOW - they are breathtaking Shelley! My fave is the last one as well - who cares about the dull sky..you don't see it because your too busy looking at the bird !!

Thanks everyone. Just some more information - this bird I found in Rockingham at a local park. Its amazing where you find birds hey. I do go bush a lot, but when I have only an hour or two I stay closeby.

Lovely Shelley....love that tail spread and back lighting...can see why you had difficulty in picking a favorite.
