Remember Buffy the Sparrowhawk?
The little fluffball, nothing but white downy feathers and long legs?
The awkward-looking ‘teenager‘?
She’s about three months old now, maybe four.
This is what she looks like now – all grown up!

Wow… It must be such a privilege being able to shoot these wonderful creatures up close and personal… That top shot is amazing…

Really like the angles you can get with your captive raptors. Ah, yes, those eyes look familiar, yet different.

I like your images, I think we have similar taste and love playing with the 105 and 50mm lenses with minimal dof.
