Strutting her stuff!

By Lillian  
This is Flo a very talented Crested Caracara
This girl will raid rubbish bins and even go underground in search of food
I was impressed with what she showed us of her capabilities.

V2 has her in flight as last in this series from the Hawk Conservancy Hampshire

Two beautifully captured images, each pin sharp and perfect, with superb clarity and natural colour Lillian .

18 Mar 2013 8:41AM
Stunning captures Lillian - both of them Although I have a slight preference for V1 - the old girl strutting her stuff is just fab! Smile

The title for V1 is very desciptive and imaginative, sums her up well.
Both are lovely images, something I have come to expect from you Lillian, well done.
