Birds of Prey

Above and below are a selection of photographs of birds taken during a recent visit to Gauntlet Birds of Prey . Gauntlet is located just outside Knutsford, not far from Tatton Park. The full set of photographs can be found over on flickr.

I always find it a fun challenge to capture birds in flight, especially when using a very knackered Canon 75-300mm lens. How knackered, you ask? I tried to get it repaired and was told it was cheaper to just buy a new lens than repair it. Still, the auto-focus just about still works and I was able to capture these (and other) images of owls in motion.
