I have dragged this post up from my archives for two reasons..
Firstly I have been lazy and not been out too much over the last week but secondly I have got a day out at the same Bird of Prey centre as a birthday present from the youngest. As you can see from the post below this was Matts day out and I was the photograher..... the roles will be reversed for my visit and Matt will be the photographer while I get up close and personal with the raptors.
Matts day out at the local raptor centre allowed him to handle some stunning birds while I took the pictures. This Bald Eagle was actually perched on the Gauntlet when I took this portrait of this handsome bird
There is a point when you just cant look at each other any longer
How handsome am I?
