A FALCON NESTING IN A TREE.

I’ve seen many remarkable nature photographs over the years but this

photo of a nesting Falcon is perhaps the most remarkable Nature shot that

I’ve ever seen. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Nature is truly breath-taking!

Haha! That was definitely not what I expected at all...still it's a pretty interesting photo.

I love the references in the article to "empty" State forest & "standard dry Australian bush". No doubt a pile of exotic trees & a few theme parks, a mine or two & a shopping mall will liven the place up.

Nice pose, background a little noisy but definately a IOTW possibility ;-)

Thanks Soakes. I had just assumed it was just Photoshopped.

I seem to recall another of the species in a tree on the beaudesert road south to the NSW border
