Another quickie break from Rome. Falconer Kira Weston brought a couple of her owls for another Camera Club worknight this last Monday evening. She had introduced us to Tillie the barn owl some time ago on an outdoor shoot. This time it was in our meeting room (well, it was cold and wet outside!), and as well as Tillie, she also brought along Libby, a young female eagle owl. Now, owls are my favourite birds, and I was especially delighted when we got the chance to pose with Libby perched on our gloved hand - I didn't need asking twice! Despite Libby appearing to be a bit fierce looking, she was very friendly and co-operative It was just a pity I couldn't hold the camera in my other hand and show you both of us together! Perhaps I may be able to acquire an image from another club memberů
