    Absolutely stunning shot what a magnificent bird.
    Started with a Nikon D50 and now learning how to use a D80.

    Daily free flight at the zoo. The McCaw spelling? comes back after each flight because the zoo is it's home range and he likes a feed.

    I love what you've done on that seagull Rooz. A new slant on a standard topic.

    thanks...but there is a reason...

    i chopped his tail off and it was so nicely exposed and sharp i didnt want to ditch it so i thought to try something different. if i didnt screw up the original i never would have done this and i quite like it this way...another lesson learnt. lol

    Can anyone tell me/remind me what this one is - it isn't the Peregrine Falcon
    it's a smaller version and I think it started with 'L' !!
    This one was indoors under a red heater lamp - I did very slightly lessen the red -
    but it's more or less as it came off the camera.

    Poor inside light dictated 1000 ISO
    Exposure was +1ev because of the very light backdrop
    Tricky shot all in all
    10th sec @5.6 (wide open) at 200mm (300mm equiv)

    Don't know what the bird is Geoff but the image is fantastic. The colours give a real texture feel to the shot.
    Love that seagull crop too Rooz it's definitly got attitude!
    Around every picture there's a corner & round every corner there's a picture
    - the fun's in finding them

    Cheers Phill

    Well - it's either a Lanner Falkon or
    it's a Saker Falcon

    I'm no expert - but it's about 2/3 the size of the Peregrine.

    Next shot, a Peregrine
    - this is not the sharpest of images - but as mentioned before - it was
    not a good light that day
