Post your nose (beak) hole shot 2009

So far this year (2009) I have only gotten 2 keepers where you can see thru the hole in the nose (beak). Why do I keep trying to get these shots ??? Cuz it is a difficult challenge or at least it is for me. Now my goal is to add to my hole in the nose shots while the subject is flying. I have keepers from last year but none so far in 2009. Will (Trenchmonkey) and I had a lot of fun and laughs trying this last year. If you haven't tried to do this I suggest you try it, I find it a lot of fun trying to get the subject when pearched or flying to look the right way a real challenge.



A big crop to show its real.


My other one for this year so far.

# 1 besides being a nice nose hole shot...is also a lovely picture. It seems very subdued, nice peaceful feeling, composition and tone are spot on...great picture.

Not quite low enough to see through to the other side, but close . . . .

BTW only a few groups of birds have perforate nostrils (waterfowl, cranes, New World Vultures, etc)- most have a nasal septum that separates the two sides. The "plugs" (probably modified turbinates) in falcon nostrils are thought to be related to air flow during high speed dives - possibly air speed sensors or protection from excessive air pressure during the dive.
