Lanner falcon, Kalahari

One of the key predators of the Kgalagadi, the lanner can frequently be seen swooping upon flocks of doves and weavers when they come to waterholes to drink.

I was unable to get a shot of this bird hunting, as a beanbag and a 500mm lens do not make for an ideal panning combo.

Next time, I am going to find a way to stick the Wimberley head on a post and try to shoot these awesome hunters.
