Thank you,

The eyes are like this because they were hiding in the middle of a dark tree, I had to use 3200 ISO :)

Perhaps I can rationalize it this way.  As a teen I got enthused about taxidermy and did many birds and the odd other creature, tanning hides and so forth.  My mother's freezer was a subject of contention due to people providing me with road kill.  At that time I was buying eyes of all descriptions and maybe the fascination wore off. :(  A Great-horned owl was one of my first, a Short-eared was another.

The eyes are truly amazing! ;)

Here are the beginning shots in a sequence where a young Peregrine Falcon takes a Rock Pigeon.

The Falcon methodically disassembled the Pigeon. It ate almost everything.  The remaining shots are amazing but a bit bloody.

The question is, how much is too much for general public viewing. I found the photos amazing as a window into the natural world.  However, I used to be a Biology teacher and my take probably does not match the average viewer.  While I enjoy “glamor” shots showing the beauty of wildlife, It is not the whole story.

In Canon Rumors the only wildlife shots with bloody images are of Lions with their kill.

I wonder is there a venue that would be appropriate ?

IslanderMV, intriguing.  I'm for posting them even though I truthfully don't enjoy viewing such things.  It's not everyday one gets to see these falcons in action, especially high quality shots.

Hi Folks.
Lots of great shots recently, well done to all.
A few shots from recent weeks, apparently they are baited, ::) I always thought of it as rewarded for posing for photographs especially as I was using a flash!  :)

Right, if I can just get this peanut airborne I’m outa here.

Running scared trying to find somewhere to hide from the pops and bangs coming from the fields adjacent to the reserve! I guess a few nuts are pretty harmless compared to high velocity lead!
