Great Grey Owl

Here are a few shots of Buzz, a great grey owl taken at the Raptor Foundation in Cambridgeshire.  The great grey is one of the largest owls in the world and its most prominent feature is its almost perfectly circular face.

Chilean Blue Eagle

Here are a few shots of a Guillermo, a Chilean Blue Eagle, taken at the Raptor Foundation in Cambridgeshire.  A very impressive looking raptor, I’m sure you will agree, and even more stunning in flight.  Look out for Guillermo in flight in a future post.

Burrowing Owl

Here are a couple of static shots of Basil, a burrowing owl, taken during a photographic day at the Raptor Foundation in Cambridgeshire.  Unfortunately, Basil was not in the mood to put on a flying display, however many of the other raptors did oblige and will be featured in future posts.  I am particularly pleased with the nice bokeh here predominantly provided by the vibrant rapeseed field in the background.
