Keith Parker was on the veranda of his Lynchs Creek home when he heard the loud sound of birds.

“They were making a hell of a noise,” he said.

A peregrine falcon had landed in a dead tree on the side of the ridge beside his house.

It was about 100 metres away, Keith said.

Keith takes lots of photos – of his house, the windmill out front, the birds, cow paddocks around the property and the Border Ranges in the distance.

Keith Parker’s home at Lynchs Creek near Kyogle.

He shares his images on his Facebook page and often enters and wins the photographic section of the Kyogle Show.

He loves taking photos of nature.

This was his first peregrine falcon up close.

“I took the photo on my Nikon camera which has a great zoom lens on it,” he said.

He doesn’t know what bird the falcon caught.

“I captured the peregrine falcon which caught another bird for a meal.

“Mother Nature doing its thing.”
