I went there on a Saturday morning early and I was the only person there for the first hour or so. Definitely worth checking out if you live nearby.

Fantastic shot mark! I too suspected this might have been your's after trawling through all the images to see whether I could indeed spot you out! You got my blue ribbon!

Nice capture Mark, and the wings give it so much more depth than a classic 'head shot'.

I gave this an 8. Really liked the unique effect created by your angle and the patterns on the wings.

Impressive. When I saw the shallow DOF I didn't expect the focal length to be 200mm or less. How close were you?

Great DOF. Gives a sense of "movement" to this shot. Nice and clean. Back to bump you up to 9.

Let me guess - you are an employee of a falconry or mates with one? Looks like a night shot with a large diffused flash. No matter - amazing shot! :)

The composition and DOF in this picture (whether real or artificial) and the perfect sharpness of the bird's head make this special. I like it.

Nicely done, like the fact you got the catch light in the eye. Really nice detail in the facial area.
