My token Black Falcon shot! Although we saw plenty, I just couldn't get near one - this one was a LONG way up. It had just been sitting in a tree that I was surreptitiously sneaking up on (I thought!), but got spooked and bolted away from me behind the tree, before circling up and over. Ah well, maybe next time! If you want to see a really nice photo of a BF, see this one of Julian's (maybe even the same bird!):
