The Food Pass

Whenever you are photographing breeding birds of prey the ultimate photo that you are after is the food-pass. It is the split second when the prey is being passed from the adult to its young. You have to be quick and yet, surprisingly, it is seldom the best photo of the series. What happens is that at the split second of the pass a membrane closes over their eyes as a protection in case of mis-timing. These membranes are clearly visible in this weeks blog photo and if you check the gallery photos there is a far more impressive photo taken a split second after the pass.Click here
