Wallpaper Monday

Raptor

The photographer says only “Taken during a bird-show in Buchs, Switzerland,” but I’d like to know a bit more, such as…from what? An ultralight? A hang glider? Or the highest peak in the area?

Looking a raptor straight in the eye with nothing but sky behind…what an incredible shot.

    Guestimating the angle of the clouds and from what I’ve seen of bird shows, this could well have been taken from the ground while the bird was on its way back to the falconer.
