Photographing fast-moving birds coming directly towards you is very difficult, even if you know when they are coming and from where.

    Excellent photos! I’m not at all sure Murray, but it’s possible you may have the European and Bengal eagle owls mixed up.

    Some nice photos of a falconry demonstration at Dunrobin Castle in Scotland. I’d love to get to the British Isles to hawk someday.
