Today I went to the Culinary Ontario Festival at Ontario Place. I saw a raptor silhouette outside the main area, on a hill in the distance. Her owner was there and he explained to me that they were hired for bird control. He sits there for the day with the raptor which keeps the gulls and other scavenger birds away (I didn't see too many in the area which is odd for the waterfront).
Anyways, this is Congo. I asked her owner how close I could get to her. He replied that she'd let me know. I remained respectful and Congo let me get very close. She was intrigued with her reflection in my lens. The first 3 shots were taken at 55mm focal length; the last shot was 40mm.
