The owls are not what they seem…. April 2015 saw a visit to Falconry UK, a fantastic Birds of Prey centre not far from Thirsk, North Yorkshire.

A couple of hours in the evening were spent photographing a selection of (live!) birds of prey from the centre – no easy task trying to compose, focus and then take the image without the birds moving inbetween. Technically not a perfect set of images due to the time/darkroom setup I brough but I think the character of these magnificent birds shines through the imperfections of the plates.

With Thanks to Matthew and all the team at Falconry UK.
