Things have been super busy here, and frankly thought everyone was getting sick of
Pileated Woodpecker photos from me, lol! Took time off, and Monday ventured out to our Raptor Center. It was such a great experience seeing these birds that are in the skies above me every day, up close and personal.
Gave me a chance to try out BIF with dappled light and fast fliers as well. Saw a Marabou stork and kookaburra for the first time face to face. The Falconer program is fabulous. I will post a few then go back a few months :shock: and see what ya'll have been up to!

Thanks. It was his first time in the flight program! He grabbed that bait quicker than I could click my shutter!

Well Gail, I have always loved your zombies bi-line, but this time with it just under the Turkey Vulture and it's handler...PRICELESS!

Great set Flo and that stork is one of the ugliest birds I've ever seen :) The first Eagle portrait is superb.

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.
