Default Beautiful shot of a nesting Falcon

I know that my classmates would recognize a Falcon because they are older
and mature. I'm not sure I can say that about their offspring. It is a
beautiful sight to see one nesting high up in a majestic Eucalyptus tree!

I've seen many remarkable nature photographs over the years but this photo
of a nesting Falcon in an old tree is perhaps the most remarkable nature
shot that I've ever seen.

Please send this to your older friends, since the younger ones probably
have never seen a falcon, and wouldn't recognize it.

I'm old enough to remember Falcons, but I've never even seen a picture of one nesting. I worked on the Mississippi Gulf Coast in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and I saw lots of strange nesting behavior there. It seems that natural disasters often upset the natural order of things. We found a Corsair nesting on a rooftop, and a green & yellow Gator nesting on the bottom of a swimming pool. Some Coffins floated out of their nests in the ground.

“We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it and stop there lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove lid again and that is well but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore.” - Mark Twain

Here in Mexico that was a FORD 200 1963, the word Falcon was a trade mark so FMC had to change the name. My father in that days was working in the Ford company and bougth one, so I know it, and I enjoyed driving it.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I've always been amused by the fact that the Falcon never sold very well. But when Lee Iacocca built the Mustang body on the Falcon frame (with no significant changes), it was a great hit. It's design that turns our heads, not mechanics.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

The Falcon was very popular here in Australia.
