Peregrine falcons captured in photographs

June
20

We featured a story in today’s Surroundings column on Steve Sachs, a dentist who practices in Harriman, lives in White Plains and grew up in Ramapo. He’s been taking photos of peregrine falcons nesting at Hook Mountain at Nyack Beach State Park for three years.

Here are a few more of his stunning shots, and if you’d like to see even more, including photos of owls, hummingbirds and other wildlife, check out his Web site here.

All photos here were shot by Steve Sachs. Click on the photos to make them larger:
