Grand Prize Winner --- Day 12/254

Walk: No, sinus

Distance: n/a

Imagine the patience, technical skill -and sheer luck - to capture this peregrine falcon attacking a pelican headed toward her young.

Here's the Grand Prize and Gold Winner, Jack Zhi's, description: During the breeding season, a female peregrine falcon fiercely protects her young, attacking anything that comes near the nest. For four years, I attempted to capture these rare moments of her attacking large brown pelicans with incredible speed and agility. The high-speed chase made it challenging to capture a close-up shot with a long lens.
