Raptors part 2!

here are some more pictures from the feastival last weekend. My favorite picture is the Eagle Owl face shot. His eyes are awesome red orange.

Below is a Goshawk

Peregrine falcon Does anyone know why the breast is orangey?

A funny looking snowy owl


  1. Hi Birdboy! Thanks for stopping by blog and posting your comment! Thanks for the kind words about my Dickcissel photos. I appreciate it!

    Nice raptor shots. Eagle Owls are awesome their eyes!

    I really like your bottom pic of the snowy. Great expression on his face. The open beak really adds to the image. Actually, both pics have great expressions.

    To answer your question about my gear: I use Canon cameras and lenses. Currently, I use (2) Canon 40D bodies (I have a 10D body as a back-up). My lenses are: Canon 400mm 5.6 and a Canon 70-200mm 2.8 IS lens. I also have a big Gitzo Tripod. What do you use?

  2. Snowy Owl looks hungry...It has a mustache...

    Beautiful Birds.

  3. I like these shots and the Eagle Owl is nice.

  4. My favorite is the Eagle owl, too! That would make a great cover for a Halloween or fall project! Wow! Love all of them and it is so cool that you captured the Snowy with mouth open!

  5. Oh my..the first and last photos are amazing bird boy! should submit those to a contest..or something
