Peregrine Falcon by Tim White
Peregrine Falcon is a perennially popular subject for bird photographers, but few shots of this fast-moving bird of prey can claim to be as impactful as Tim White's stunning image above.
Tim captured this dramatic scene at his local patch on the outskirts of Seaton, Devon, earlier this week. The Peregrine has plucked an unfortunate juvenile Red Knot from the scrapes by the Axe Estuary, and Tim has intercepted the falcon making off for somewhere quieter where it can enjoy its meal.
This event must have been over in a matter of seconds, so for Tim to keep his composure and really nail the shot is a job very well done. It's perfectly framed, with pin-sharp focus on the subject and a diffuse background to ensure it's all about predator and prey here. Well done to Tim on his phenomenal photograph!
