Few bird of prey shots from a visit today
Wicked Awesome A humble DeadEye:thumbup:
Thanks a lot for looking and your comment DeadEye.
Great pictures. Could you name the birds? I'm just curious (and stupid when it comes to ornithology).
The pose of the 3rd is great. 'What's that? A camera? What does it do?'....:mrgreen:
so these were taken in some sort of bird refuge?
This whole set is stunning. I love them all!
Incredible series of one of my favorite creatures. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you all for the comments, they are just the most gorgeous of creatures.
The place I took them is a bird of prey centre, they have falconry courses and the like and keep a large number of birds of prey on site.
Here goes on the names, I could be wrong ornithology isn't my strong suit either!
1: Bald Eagle
2: Tawney Owl
4: Peregrine Falcon
5: Barn Owl
6: Barn Owl
7: Hooded Vulture
8: Black kite
that first one of the bald eagle really grabs your attention. They are all awesome looking pictures.
great job on getting such sharp feather detail! My faves are 2, 3 5 & 6 <-- nice one getting the owl's full wingspan in the frame. Reeeally enjoyed looking at this series.
Thanks a lot for the comments, I was pretty happy with the results of my photo taking yesterday
6 is majestic. Amazing shots Stanokella.
Thanks a lot RKW3 for looking and making a comment.
