St. George, Utah. Jan. 24, 2014. The closest I could get for the shot was about 90 yards. He was flying back and forth between two cottonwood trees and everything was out in the open. This is my first picture of a Prairie Falcon. He has huge legs and feet for such a small bird. Sony A77 with a Sony 70.400 zoom at 400 from a tripod using a wireless remote shutter. 1/200 F8 ISO 100.
