Meet Nitro

Harris Hawk - Flaconry

This photograph was created with the Canon 600mm f/4 L IS II USM lens (Canon 600mm f/4 L IS II USM review), the Canon EOS 5D mark III, mounted on a tripod with gimbal head. Have a look at the equipment I typically carry with me.

The photograph above was created around the Riverview area, Florida. This is a trained Harris Hawk called Nitro, used in the sport of Falconry. The bird of prey is let loose during the hunt and chases for its quarry. When the hunt is successful, the raptor gets to enjoy its meal. Falconry used to be considered the sport of kings…

I invite you to have a peek at the Bird & Wildlife Photography website to see other beautiful image creations.
