Stoop to conquer

A combination of specially-shot wildlife footage and computer graphics gives a unique view of diving alongside a stooping peregrine. Moments before impact, and travelling at speeds of up to 200 miles per hour, a peregrine falcon unleashes her 5cm talons. The force of the blow as she hits her prey snaps its backbone and she plucks it out the air to take back to her chicks.
