Take off

By gary_d
Sticking with the owl centre theme which I will be doing for a while as I had quite a few keepers on the day.

A very big thank you to Joan and Pamela for your user awards, I am so pleased to receive them

Thanks for looking.

..and why not! We need to make the most of these opportunities and I'm sure you'll still be enjoying these shots many years from now. It's wonderful to have the chance to photograph captive birds of prey without all the usual falconry paraphernalia attached to them. This shot looks natural and is well timed, giving a pleasing shape and showing off those scary talons.
