BL-80

 

As I captured the image of the newly fledged peregrine cautiously stretching it’s wings and hesitantly launching itself from the top of Chichester Cathedral I believed that time would strengthen. Sadly, we are now mourning the demise of BL-80.

This Monotype was created at around the time she was euthanased due to a problem with the sheaths of her feathers.  Although I was unaware at the time, I believe it captures the ephemerality nature dictates.  The contrast of strength and delicacy in mark making, symbolising the power and fragility of the young falcon.
