Ken Franklin & the beauty of the peregrine falcon
This is beautiful photography & a beautiful animal, with pilot & falconer Ken Franklin checking out how fast the bird can go (Suzanne is in the film, too…). His falcon Frightful clocks in at over 180 miles an hour in one test, and over 240 a week later.
This vid has over 1,600,000 visits, which makes sense if everybody watches it ten times each like I did…you’re gonna love it. Poetry in motion, to start the day.
