Well the bluebells are out at last!! Definitely slower to come out up in the North of England...

I used the 'Simplify' plug-in on these 2 photos, I think I rather like it!

Falconry Centre

Well, went to the Falconry Centre in Thirsk on Friday. Was a lovely warm day and thought it would be a nice thing to do with Sam before he went back to school on Monday. Took some shots of the Great Grey Owl and the White Tailed Sea Eagle. Truly beautiful birds. Cranked the ISO up to 320 to increase the shutter speed as these birds move FAST! Didn't do too bad a job considering I haven't tried getting shots like this before now. Got a lot of out of focus shots too but I intend to go back next week having learned from my mistakes.
