My Raptor Photography Project | Les Arnott

Birds of prey have fascinated me all my life and to spend two years photographing a variety of owls, hawks and falcons was a dream come true!

The equipment I used mainly for the photography of the birds of prey was basically my Canon 1Dx with a L series Canon 70-200mm and a 7D Mk2 armed with a L series 400mm prime lens. On occasions I would swap lenses between the two cameras depending on the light. The 1Dx performs much better in low light and I used this camera extensively for flight shots in the dense low lit woodland where very high ISO settings were unavoidable to capture the fast moving birds.
