A warm welcome to TN. : )
From the sounds of it, you fit right in. : )
There are quite a few TN'ers who have had obsessions of the same kind.
Loot has a theme called "Touched by Nature", and your experience seems to be one of those.
Stretch is a beautiful bird. What a privilege and a thrill for you to have had the opportunity to know him and watch him.
You must have quite a quick reflex. Knowing how fast these falcons go, you certainly caught the action very expertly. The details are amazingly sharp for this kind of action shot. You must have been on a high and precarious perch yourself to achieve that POV.
Thanks for sharing this capture of a magnificent raptor.
How did you find out that he died? How did he die?

There aren't a lot of photographers who can manage such a shot. The speed of this Falcon is amazing and you made a very sharp photo of it with great details. The light and colours are also excellent. Great work!

You photo is impressive as it shows with grat sharpness this bird flying with high speed. You have captured a very fine light giving such vivid colors and you have rendered a reachness of color tones.
Thank you for sharing,
Stunning capture, Will!
The pose is excellent.
Very good timing and reactions.
Very well done!

How wonderful to have been able to observe him for all those times, Will. You must have taken some good shot of him. This one is good with Stretch diving off the cliff. You can see how alert his eyes are as he's looking for prey.
He looks a beautiful bird, and it's a great actions shot.
Thank you for sharing him with us
