Prairie Falcon

Tucson, AZ using a Canon Powershot SX10HS

A falcon of open habittats and canyon lands, Prairie Falcons hunt rodents and birds by shallow-angled swoops from low to the ground, rather than by the high-altitude stoops of Peregrine Falcon. Young Peregrines can look very similar to Prairie Falcon but have longer, darker tails and never show Prairie’s underwing pattern. Prairie Falcon is almost unknown wast of the Mississippi River and appears to be declining in many areas of the West

VOICE Similar to the Peregrine but a bit highter

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.
