Imagine a photographer chasing birds with a camera, trying to nearly fly with them to get close. Yeah that is me. I am looking for places where I can watch birds, places where I can get near the bird and take a nice picture just with my basic lenses. This time I could get very close. I could touch a bird with my hand, pet him and adore him for however long I wanted. The bird didn’t fly away. Yeaaay !
This owl is used to people and I believe that she even likes being touched. You can find her in the entrance to the Bird of Prey centre at Russborough House. I travel to Russborough House quite often because I am a part of Cruthu, a group of artists who exhibit there. I mentioned Russborough House and my first exhibition in my article Art exhibition in Russborough house – my art work is displayed
Russborough House is an amazing place to visit with children. You can find many different types of activities there and interesting places to visit for all the members of your family. One of them is the recently opened Bird of Prey centre. There is an entrance fee of six euro but you can see this owl at the entrance before you pay. So even if you don’t want to enter and see the whole centre, don’t miss meeting this wonderful bird.
Have a look how cute and peaceful she is:
When you enter the Bird of Prey centre you will see many more birds. Some of them were posing for my camera out of their cages and I could get very close to them. I got a perfect opportunity to take a nice shot of a bird without the cage wall in view. I will be sharing these photographs with you soon in the category “Chasing birds with camera.”
