Peregrine Falcon (Captive)
This Peregrine Falcon was taken at the 13 Annual Eagle Festival at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, which is located on the eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay in Cambridge, MD. Roger Maki joined me and another photographer friend. They had eagles, hawks, owls, kestrels and falcons.

Love the plummage!  Great focus on the eyes too as many do not do this.  Very well done and impressive...(I think I see a spot to the right of the shoulder in the background??)

Firstly 2 spots and most important a great portrait of this incredible bird.

Thanks for the positive feedback. I agree on the spots. I'll get rid of those today.

OK, spots removed and image above replaced.
