Haven't had much practice at raptors yet, but here are a few (if I've got the upload technique right, that is...)

An Eagle Owl. It was taken in a very dark place so flash was used.

I recently went on an Amews Falconry Photo Day at Beaulieu organised by Montechoro.

I learnt just how hard it is to get the focus right! The greatest challenge was Bess the Peregrine falcon stooping to a lure

I can't tell you how satisfying it was to get her in focus, even if the composition is crap! I heartily recommend trying this if you haven't done it before and if you have you will understand my thrill in capturing the speed and grace of these killing machines!bess-2-dsc3343.jpg

The first two taken at the Barn Owl Centre (thanks Vince). The Tawny owl is the late lamented Hollow. The last is of a Turkey Vulture taken at the IBPC Newent - just down the road to me,w-2.jpgms-man-1.jpgturkey-vulture.jpg
