A little challenging to capture the moment, with the bright sun & haze over the river, and the speed of the bird, but I was fortunate to photograph a Peregrine Falcon Mom delivering lunch to it's three fledglings. Their main diet is other birds which they can dive for, while in flight, at sometimes over 200 mph. That is why they are considered among the fastest animals on the planet.
