This was taken a few years ago at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary in Australia, during a bird flight show. I think I was mostly drawn to the show in the hopes of seeing some owls (and was not disappointed), but all of the featured birds were beautiful.

Here, I attempted to take a picture of a bird of prey mid-flight (I want to say it was a falcon but I don’t really remember and, well, you definitely can’t tell from the picture!) but all I managed was this dizzying blur. Clearly my skills in nature and action photography require a lot of work.  I  did not succeed in capturing any decent motion shots that day.

Sadly, my owl pictures didn’t fare much better.
