Photo Friday – Peregrine Falcon and a Pigeon

Fridays have occasionally been a place for ‘fun photos,’ hence the usual ‘Fun Photo Friday’ title.  What follows is definitely amazing photography, but I’m a little reluctant to call it ‘fun.’  Incredible, gripping, fascinating – yes.  Fun?  Noooot really.

This peregrine falcon apparently had little trouble catching it’s prey, a pigeon, this morning on the Rockland waterfront.  It chose the top of the J. & E. Riggin‘s main mast as it’s dinner table.  Many thanks to Don Reimer for his photos and generosity in sharing them with us.
