Head on with a Prairie Falcon

Sometimes getting pictures is a good measure of luck. This past Saturday my son and I would out looking for photo subjects when out of nowhere this falcon came flying straight at my truck. I slammed on the brakes (safely – it was a rural dirt road), threw open my truck door and started snapping away. Managed a nice series of images of it, these are some of the best.

This was my first day out shooting with my new Canon 7D Mark II and thus far have been quite impressed with it. It shoots at 10 frames per second which is just insane and perfect for birds in flight. Of course if you aren’t focused or have your exposure sent wrong, you do just get 10 frames per second of junk. 😉  I’m really looking forward to playing with the camera some more. Not so much looking forward to the 548 page manual though.

Taken in Adams County, Colorado.
