Congratulations to naturesmoments for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 24 votes - View Previous Winners


I attended Ray Barlow's Raptors in Flight Program, I had a really good time and got to do quite a bit of shooting (all photos below were taken on March 29th and are of captive birds). It did take a little PP work to remove the jesses,(a short strap fastened around the leg of a hawk or other bird, to which a leash may be fastened).

Hope you enjoy the images!

These are probably some of the best in-flight shots I've ever seen.

nice shots, is the blur done in post? I thought it was done in camera until #6 made me question it. #6 just looks like too much motion, maybe since it is a side shot. If all in camera then you did great to track them so well
