    OK photos of a NZ Falcon

    Saw this fella yesterday. Really quiet bird, let me get within a few metres and stayed there till I left. Such awesome birds.

    Hard to take clear photos in torrential rain and blustery winds but resonably happy with these.

    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    Excellent.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Lovely photos. Well done Josh. I frequently get close to them but don't have the ability to get such stunningly clear photos. We have several breeding pairs outside our back door and we never get tired of watching them. Awesome birds.
