Lanner Falcon by Joseph T. Meirose IV

Currently unavailable for purchase

One day I’m photographing beautiful models, the very next day it’s beautiful BOP. Working on combining the two. ;)

A new 6 week old addition the the ranch.

The Lanner Falcon is considered an endangered species in the EEC. Lanner falcons are fast fliers and live in pair but practice group hunting. Female acts like a beater and hunts out victims while the male remains a bit behind, ready to swoop down on the prey. This technique, rather unusual amongst birds of prey, offers this sedentary bird enough food resources for its survival.
