Picture(s) of the Day - "Courtship Ritual"

A few weeks ago, we stopped to check out a couple of local "celebrities", the downtown Moncton Peregrine Falcons. The sun had just come up and lit up the pair perfectly. It looked like the male had just gone out to pick up breakfast and has come back to offer it up to his mate. She stalked over and after she accepted it, he meekly looked on, as if seeking her approval for the offering. It was an incredible sight.  All photos taken with Canon 7D mk II, Canon 100-400mm V2, 1/1250, F8 and ISO 1000.
