Special Treat

My class in the geology of Pittsburgh took a field trip today to the top of the Cathredral of Learning, 40 stories up. The view was terrific, or would have been if the weather had been better. After many glorious, sunny days it was cold and gray today. At least it wasn’t raining while we were up there, so we did enjoy the view. But the big treat was the peregrine falcon sitting on the ledge watching us as we watched him. I took this quick shot of him. Topofcathedral001
As I was preparing to get a better one, someone else used a flash. The bird scolded us for almost half a minute and then flew off.
