This is a brilliant photograph. I don't think the Jesses spoil this at all. These are trained, captive birds and that's what they wear.

Guess you just have to accept the ties on the legs, John, but having said that, what a cracking shot, the detail immaculate for an in-flight shot.

Great image. I agree it's a pity about the jesses. There are some sites where big raptors are flown without them.
