Peregrine Falcon, Torrey Pines

I went to the Torrey Pines Reserve today with pro bird photographer Larry Moskovitz.

Larry was kind enough to tell me that the peregrine falcon juveniles were fledging. He asked me if I would like to join him for a photo shoot.

Saw at least three juveniles. Caught some nice acrobatics. It was dull and overcast but managed to get off a few clicks.

Lots of serious bird photographers around, I definitely felt like I didn't have enough lens when I saw all the nice fast glass.


I made do. In fact I think I got some epic shots, got very lucky. Here are a couple to wet your appetite that I randomly picked out of a hat. I will process more tomorrow.


Really looking forward to seeing what I caught!




Thanks Larry!

Break the rules, get that f2.8 400 lens. You'll never be happy until you do it.
