Thank you, Ron!
I used my:
That is almost full frame.
I took a trip out to the Canadian Raptor Conservancy on Wed. with a fellow photographer friend. This place is just amazing if you love raptors. Trying to find an Eagle in Toronto is as easy as finding a pot of gold at the bottom of a rainbow. Not happening.
This place has some 200 birds, all hand raised. They use them for various projects and activities. It is amazingly well run, clean, and the birds are healthy and happy. Also, they do rehabilitation for injury, wild birds and also release specially raised birds into the wild. Amazing business, fully licensed.
The birds are trained to put on a show for you, they fly from point to point at various parts of the very, very large facility. This is over their pond.
Not as impressive as say, Jeff shooting Eagles in the wild, but I don't have this option, so this is the next best thing. For $90 for a 3 hours session, this is a hi-lite for me. They will typically fly 4-6 raptors of various types, then they bring out birds for static photography. During the session, they also give background information, if the birds are endangered or not, like our Barn Owl, etc.
