Continuing the owl theme, here are a few from the Leeds Castle falconry display (more of the castle later)

I was surrounded by a group of compact camera users, and the shouts of "NOOO CHANCE!!!" as the birds screamed past was rather amusing.

I flicked to closest subject dynamic AF, continuous focussing, 5fps and 640 ISO, then kept my finger on the shutter and prayed!

Here's part of a sequence of 10 shots, when the eagle owl was sent dive bombing over a line of volunteers. Probably a good thing that the girl in red had her eyes shut! :eek:

1 and 7 are the best for me.

Hope you show those people that did say no chance what you got. That would have shut them up!!

I did a load myself a few months ago but not flying as the weather was so bad :(, must do it again as they are great to shoot!

Impressive shots. I need to find a decent bird of prey centre (no camping out in the woods for hours for me!!) and get some shots like this.

Thanks!

Actually the first one is a cheat - it's just one of that flyby sequence, but where the owl was slightly higher. I photoshopped out a couple of kids heads so I didn't have to crop too tightly.
