Windy Perch

That beautiful white-morph Gyrfalcon is an adult female.

She was hunting flying toward the wind from a pole to another. The falcon was opening its wings to keep its balance in the strong gusts of wind.

On that photo, a quick glance at me that I won't forget !
The first time I can photograph that bird in ten years birdwatching all over the province of Québec.

February 2011, Québec, Canada
