Festival of the Cranes 2018 - Deadly Beauty Photography with Matthew Mitchell

Live raptors in the field! Hawks, falcons and eagles were the star performers as they were released to fly, chase lures, and possibly hunt wild prey (viewers be warned!). Falconer and wildlife rehabilitator Matthew Mitchell gave priority to the needs of photographers as he exercised his trained raptors. A professional wildlife photographer was on site offering photography techniques and tips.
