The Amur Falcons travels a long distance during winter to migrate to South Africa from Northern China. On their way they sometime stopped in India. After a long time, Amur Falcons has made a small halt in Lonavala, India. This is a grassland. When I heard about this I decided to go to the place and take their pictures. On an afternoon I went to the grassland of Lonavala where the birds were seen. I had to scan the large grassland to spot them. There were 3-4 of them I spotted. I followed one of them who were busy in killing insects on ground. She rested on a small rock. I crawled on ground towards her with my camera in hand. In a moment she flew from there and perched on a broken tree branch in the ground. I followed her again slowly. I focused on her and waited for her move. She was scanning the area with her sharp eyes. And finally when she made the flight I freeze the moment.
