| No Comments | No TrackBacks

This is the center photo of the best series of Wild of the Week photos I have ever received; click here for the tale of Rick Remington's series of a peregrine falcon taking a yellow-shafted northern flicker at Montrose Harbor and other Field Notes.

Here is the series of photos, as taken in order at Montrose Harbor by Remington.

First the wide shot above, the approach of the peregrine toward the migrating flicker.

The moment of impact.

Life and death as twins. Remington said the flicker was still alive in this photo.

E-mail nominations for WOTW, outdoor photos of all sorts from around Chicago outdoors, or Buck of the Week: Unplugged, a celebration of live big bucks around Chicago outdoors, to straycasts@sbcglobal.net.
