Photo of the Week: 25-31 October 2021


Peregrine Falcon by Robert Booth



This brilliant image of a stooping Peregrine Falcon caught our collective eye here at BirdGuides. In many ways this is testament to the phenomenal quality of modern digital cameras, but Robert Booth has nonetheless done very well to maintain composure and execute such an effective shot of the world's fastest animal, particlarly as it leans into the dive and gravity plays its part. Congratulations to Robert on his winning photo!
