Great pix.

Getting a good photo of a falcon or a hawk is on my bucket list.

Eagles, Owls, Vultures I've got.

But Falcons and Hawks...always seem too 'flighty'....as soon as I raise my camera...they're gone.

Very nice! I don't think I've ever seen a Merlin, much less photographed one. Love the frog pictures, too (they are always such fun animals to see).

Some more wonderful shots from your talented hands (& eyes)! Especially interesting to see the Merlin's winged prey.

Frog looks a lot like our Chorus Frogs, wonder if it's a related species. How big was it?
