Coop*** photo-shoot “Raptors in flight” and “static” portraits of the birds of pray.
Where: Canadian Raptor Conservancy.
What to expect:
Owls: Barn Owl, Great horned owl, Snowy owl.
Eagles: Bald eagle, Red tailed Hawk, Harris Hawk, Kestrel, Lanner Falcon.
The owners of the conservancy can not guaranteed that all 100% of the birds will fly, but usually we have 5–6 birds flying several times and 4–6 birds for the static shots.
I will recommend to arrive at the location around 11: 00 – 11:20 the latest, so you can prepare the settings on your cameras and do some test shoots of Golden and Bald eagles, that are perched. We expect to start shooting the birds in flight around noon and proceed with the static shoots until 3pm. (15:00).
What to prepare:
1. Winter clothing ¬– warm coat (parka, sheepskin etc. ☺)))
2. Thermos with a hot drink ☺
3. Photo camera – for the best results preferably DSLR.
Recommended lenses: 70–200; 100-400; 80–200; 2 ...
