The victims perspective by Photosbykev The victims perspective by Photosbykev
a shot of a Harris Hawk coming into the glove. Taken with a 20D and Canon 10-22mm lens @ 10mm setting. Flash was used in hi-sync mode so a shutter speed of 1/4000sec could be used with the flash giving some detail in the wing.
The talons were approximately 12" from the lens when the shutter was fired

I think my favourite part of this photograph is the unusual angle of the hawk's face - and the fact that the eye ridges seem to pop out.  I love the alula feathers here, too.

Incredible! The position of the bird almost alludes to the Bible, especially with the illumination of it combined with the dark sky in the background. Definite :+fav:

Holy Moly! Instant :+fav:! Incredible shot! Very surreal.. Love the warm brown colos of the bird against the gray background...! Amazing Shot!! :clap:
Did you ever try to submit a picture to 'Your Shot' at National Geographic ([link]). This one would shoot high aces, I think! :heart: I would give it a go! (You could be featured in the magazine and/or on their website...!!)
