One of the world's fastest birds of prey, the impeccably beautiful peregrine falcon can reach speeds of up to 200 miles per hour when diving for prey. Talk about power flying! Regarded by many as one of the noblest birds of prey, even at a young age, like the juvenile pictured here, peregrines exhibit form, grace and power like few other birds around.
