Raptors, Raptors, Raptors

Recently, I went with the Victoria Camera Club to visit Pacific Northwest Raptors in Duncan, B.C., about an hours drive north of Victoria. This place is incredible, with a large selection of different birds of prey that are easy to photograph. The staff are very accommodating, holding birds on their gloved arms and letting the birds fly freely. Because of the predicable flight paths, so-so picture takers like me can get decent photos of these magnificent birds. Here are some of the results...……..

Awesome pictures, Greg ! Love all of them ! You did a very good job ! I've been twice to bird shows this year and I'm always so fascinated, that I forget all I've learned about the correct camera-settings. Unfortunately, this is recognizable in my photos than. smile

Thanks for your kind comments, Heike. I've been to this raptor centre three times now and have many, many failed photos confounded. Only just now am I starting to get the hang of it.
