Thanks for your votes and comments, This is my favourite of my photos todate. I didnt go there for the early morning arrival but I had a really great day around the city and the docks with my camera. Full credit to the people of Galway for the oganisation, the Irish army for setting it all up and the market sellers and street entertainers for making it a crowd pleasing event. The background was in place with a picture of people on a camel. The Handler was not posing for me and I was positioning to have him and the bird blocking the distracting background image.

Only 13 votes for an image of this quality? Shurely shome mistake. And, btw, I think it would translate beautifully as a monochrome.
