The falcon launched into the air to swiftly become a sharp speck against the sky. It was his nature, flying high, soaring up and then darting lower to surprise an unsuspecting meal. So swift his flight, the prey was unaware till it was too late to run far or fast enough.
The hawk family is well equipped for such actions and the falcon has been around humans and trained by them for sport since 1700BC. This is still named Falconry.
Only a shadow
Feathers spread, soar silently
The deadly hunter
