Hunting Lanner Falcon

Hunting Lanner Falcon

Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, Northern Cape, South Africa

During the late sunlight hours at the Polentswa waterhole in the Kgalagadi, this Lanner Falcon attempts to hunt the huge amount of Doves that frequent this water source. Here, the bird comes in to land on the barren Earth after an unsuccessful attempt at a meal.
