Shaheen Falcon by Niranjan Sant

A pair of Shaheen Falcons Falco peregrinus peregrinator put up an elaborate courtship display that includes a mix of precise spirals and steep intertwining dives. During the courting ritual, the male passes prey to the female in mid-air, which the female accepts while flying upside-down. These birds have been clocked at diving speeds of over 350 km./hour.
