Yup, great shot indeed. Was this taken at the Raptor Conservancy?

Correct, their location is GPS tagged in the pictures - Highly recommended to all birders

Another really good one. When I shot there the problem I had was the leather straps attached to their legs. In a couple of cases it was really difficult to clone out. Great job with yours. Keep looking at your owl shot in the rain. Spectacular.

The strap on the owl was on his left leg so it's not visible here...
Shooting in the rain wasn't fun however (and one really needs an f/2.8 here), as we were all soaking wet, but the images came out great!

While shooting in the rain is unpleasant, it sure did make your shots a lot better. Gave them more interest. At least to me. Almost looks like sleet. Perfect shutter speed to capture both the bird and the rain. I should go back for another shoot since I pass there often.

Don't forget the Bird Kingdom in Niagara too

Ha, I live here and never heard of the Bird Kingdom. There is also a Butterfly Conservatory in Niagara Falls on the north end of town.

Didn't regret a bit after getting both cameras soaking wet also - Check out the water beads on this one:
