    I've just have put a new picture on my website, one of a bird of prey this
    I swear that is the same bird from the Ektachrome adds about 15 years ago.

    Now try taking a photo of an uncaptured
    one, that would be a real photo.

    I agree with Yo Yo. Birds of prey should not have a rope around their
    talons. This indoor picture of a captive bird means nothing to me. I don't
    like this situation, nor the picture.

    I know, one day I will visit the countries where I can find these birds in
    nature... Donations are always welcome ;-)

    Nice capture, the background though out of focus is very distracting &
    doesn't add to the birds natural habbitat.

  10. That's because it's a bird sanctuary and not a natural habitat.

    Looks more like a detention center to me...

    Birds of prey have been kept by people for a very long time. Don't know that
    it's really that different from keeping a cat, or a chicken.

    A symbiotic relationship. Better than most cows, who just get raised to get
    killed and eaten.

    That's why animals in there natural habbitat look better,hence why the photo
    is not worth keeping in my opinion.

    I agree

  15. I agree. I'd rather see an Eagle soaring around the mountains or roosting or a Fish Hawk
    diving after a trout.

    Zoo pictures are too common and boring.

    It's very easier said than done... Most of amature photographers like I am,
    do not have or cannot even buy (reason: too expensive) the needed objectives
    for such photography! Maybe you are rich enough... well, I'm not! :p

    Saw a peregrine falcon dive bomb a grouse on TV several days ago.
    Those are beautiful birds, but I may be biased (I read a short novel
    about a boy & peregrines & tiercels when I must have been all of
    about 11 yrs. old). Most cameras can take pictures of the screen
    and it doesn't cost very much either. Unfortunately the adage of
    getting what you pay for remains true. HDTV may help. <g>
