Eagle Owl

By Maiwand
Indian Eagle Owl (bubo bengalensis)
This magnificent bird is lovingly trained and cared for at a local (to me) small conservansy. Quite one of the finest birds I have met. Delighted to have been able to catch him coming in to land with the fantastic wings outstretched.
Hope you will see something in him that you can enjoy.

Over the moon at the wonderful respose given the the previous Kestrel. Thanks everyone and particular thanks to Steve (sparrowhawk) and Somon (simon fletch) for the UA's.

By the way I saw something very unusual today, as we drove past the river and landing stage in Henley I was looking to my left and noticed a lot of gulls perched on the posts there but surprised to see at the same time a large owl! Nowhere to easily park up but I wasn't seeing things - this was for real.

never managed a shot as good as this. Birds of prey never are where I hope they will be, if they dive down after I stop the car the will do it right behind a line of trees or a mast or I'm not fast enough getting in position.. grrr.
Amazing image. Smile Smile Smile
