g'day all,
I too was impressed by the photo in our Queensland journal of record "The Courier Mail"
But they lifted it from a list of Microsoft Desktop backgrounds provided with XP.
List members with this version may right click an empty spot of the desktop > Properties > Desktop > Scroll down the list of Backgrounds to "Peregrine Falcon"
and if you click OK a dozen images of the Falcon fill up your monitor screen !
I wondered why the paper did give the photographer's name.
I just stumbled across this when adjusting my PC settings after upgrading to the XP version.
Should we dob them in to ABC Media Watch ?
