NF Photo 121114,  Layounne, Western Sahara, Morocco

We spotted the pair from the bus and made the driver step hard on the brake. Everyone shouted STOP!
This is a very beautiful red headed falcon. It was very hard to get shots of it. We was not close them and it was hot so thereas heat shimmer in the air. Still I manage to get something. Acc to our tour guide it was probably one adult and one juvenile.
