The was a birds of prey display at the Brampton Fly In. It was nice to get close to these birds without a cage in the way. As far as I understand it, the majority of these birds have been injured and can no longer live in the wild. So they’re used to educate the general public about their species, habitats and our impact upon them.
Considering how much the early creators of gliders and later powered flight drew in inspiration from birds, I felt it was a smart thing to have this avian display alongside the main event. All of these were shot with my Sigma 150-500mm Telephoto. I see no need to stress a bird by sticking any lens in their face.
