In Search of Prey


Photo Information
Taken at a falconry display, at the Cotswold Falconry Centre.
I can't remember what type of bird this is, but I think it is a type of Falcon.

Very well captured, it must be very hard to get decent shots of these birds in flight.

Excellent capture, correct me if I am wrong but I think that might be a Harris Hawk.

Razor sharp, and I like the fact that there are trees as the backdrop.

It was very hard to get decent shots. I think my hit rate is about 10%, but they were worth the fails.
Getting there! Thanks to you guys
