who's a pretty boy?

By A2TheMerlin
Taken at the Birds of Prey centre near Holy Island in Northumbria. My mother-in-law was over the moon to be given the chance of holding the owl. Constructive criticism always welcomed.

She certainly looks quite delighted, an image which I am sure you both will cherish.

the 'issue' if there is one of course is perhaps that the keeper should have switched their position to allow you a shot of both the mother-in-law and Owl's face simultaneously whilst not being n the image themselves.

I agree with philhomer - love the mother in laws joyous face but we cant share the 'enjoyment' as the owl has its back to us?? Cant believe you didnt ask if they could move or if you could Ian?
Nice dof.
