Ready, willing and able!

I took this pose of a Harris's Hawk at a place called Callaway Gardens in Georgia (near Atlanta)

 

It is one of the few locations that features a live raptor show daily, weather permitting.

 

There are approximately one dozen birds in the program, and at each show, three to five of the raptors appear, so no two shows are ever alike.

 

Most of the birds fly freely during the show – right over the heads of the audience!
