Hi Roy,

I really like these faires . . . about the only chance I get at raptors out in the open, close up. . .

It's also one of the few occasions that I shoot mainly people -- the participants are such characters, and their antics make them very good subjects for one, like me, who is rather inept at "street photography".

I like the flying hawk, and have a similar flying shot of the same species from a faire a couple of years ago -- also with the bird trailing its tether. . . a tough catch with an MF lens. . . I have, in the past, used the DA 50-200 since it's so light and inconspicuous, but I'll have to think about it this time, with a couple of other choices available this year. . .

Bottom line -- midieval faire -- a must do this season -- Thanks for the motivation.

Scott

i know this show travels because i saw it in phoenix.

i'm inept at "street photography" also. it takes quite a talent to do it well.

roy
edit: the 2 shots of inflights were mainly luck. the birds only fly about 60 feet. it's focus on a point and use that burst mode. wife asked if i got any and all i could say is , i don't know.

Roy, a great series - a fair like this is something I haven't seen in my neighborhood.

thanks for sharing - Ronny
