A Lesson on the Birds & the Bees (told in photographs)

Blogs don't have ratings, do they? I don't think so.

For the purposes of this post, I have had to borrow a self-imposed rating from the Motion Picture Association. I feel strongly that the photographic narrative below should be rated PG-13. The guidelines for receiving such a rating are -

Parents Strongly Cautioned: Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13. May contain moderate language (nope), minimal strong language (not even one bad word), some explicit nudity (mmm, maybe? the feathers cover most everything though...), intense violence (no violence here, just love) and/or gore (do they mean Al Gore? If so, then no... he's not in this blog), or mild drug content (certainly not!).

Folks, it's a raptor romance, a true bird love story, an avian romantic comedy, a chick (making) flick... with some copulation involved. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll want to see it again and again.

Anyway, you have been warned.So now you know...

Nice shots. I am a raptor fan and those are some great looking Falcons. I live in Annapolis and was wondering where you are getting these great shots? My camera and I have been looking for some Falcons for a while and have not had much luck. Great job and thanks if you can provide any info.

Thanks John.

There are several good spots to photograph the local Peregrines.

One of the best is Greenbury Point. They sit on the tower that is the furthest South on the point. Best of all, it's open to the public.

Another good spot is at the foot of the Naval Academy Bridge over the Severn. Sometimes they will perch under the bridge on the light fixtures.
