Good Evening everyone.
Well...... here is the first of many shots from Martin's Birthday.
I booked him a Bird's of Prey Encounter at Peckforton Castle and we had a fabulous time.

I was in my element when Martin flew a Barn Owl, Harris Hawk, and a Southern Great Horned Owl (from Canada). Mind you, Martin was in his element too!! LOL
I took a total of 328 shots and couldn't wait to get home to upload them all.
Some of the Harris Hawk in flight ones were disappointing - I need more practice panning with this fast flyer.
The owls were slower - God Bless 'em and I more time to practice shooting them.

This upload is one of Solo - the Great Horned Owl - she was lovely and I could have brought her home.

I hope you are all ok, have a lovely week end and thank you for all your continued support.

Best Wishes

Bev Smile

Fantastic image well done,
maybe worth cleaning up the background to stop the eye looking over the owl at the cars.

I deliberated on this for ages, David.
Alas, I need much more practice in PS before I'd attempt to remove the background. But I'll give it a go sometime ! LOL
