Finn 23 by EdgedFeather Finn 23 by EdgedFeather
Finn, my sponsor's Peregrine Falcon. That was the first time I had ever seen him lay down. A few seconds before I got this pic he had his wings spread out too, but he pulled them back in when I started moving.

Feel free to use my photos as stock or references. Please give me credit if you use my photo! I would love to see what you make, so send me a link! :) (Smile)

that is really cute looking. Nice shot with this. I've never really seen birds lay down like that and sunbath. At most I just see little sparrows roll in dirt.

Thanks! It really depends on the bird and how comfortable they are. Some don't like to lay down, others do.

Well it's cute and adorable. It reminds me of when I was a little spawn creature and first saw a rabbit lay down

HI! I made a quick speedpaint using this Picture as reference! Once it was to test my new Tablet, it is still unpolished, but I plan finish it in near future!

Man I wish I could find a sponsor near me, tried many times to get info on everything but my state isn't exactly savvy about falconry.

What state do you live in?

Illinois. I've been to demonstrations and stuff but there aren't a lot of falconers here, at least from what I've seen.

Have you tried contacting the IFO? I don't know much about them. Not all state clubs are great, but it's worth a shot. :)
