Life Meets Art

When we visited the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum in March we were able to see the Raptor Free Flight show. At first we had positioned ourselves in the show area where the trainers worked with the birds, but when they told us we would not be able to raise our cameras to take photos of the birds we opted for the viewing deck above the show area. Although we missed out on the birds flying right overhead, I was real pleased when one of the raptors decided to land on one of the sculptures that was close by. I took several photos of this raptor on his perch, but I enjoyed this shot the most as it captured the top of the bird in a position not often seen as it made it's landing.
