continuing from the previous photo...as strolling on the promenade,i saw this beautiful young lady keeping her falcon,i think.she looks so happy and proud.
A charmy even that never have seen.
Some more notes about Victoria
Victoria is a unique blend of old world charm and new world experiences. As an island destination, Victoria offers visitors an escape from the hurried world and beams with ambience. Boasting the mildest climate in Canada we are green and beautiful year-round. In fact, Vancouver Island, where Victoria is located, is rated the TOP ISLAND in the Continental US and Canada and one of the TOP TEN ISLANDS IN THE WORLD by the 2012 Travel+Leisure World's Best Awards.
In Victoria, heritage architecture, colourful gardens and traditions like afternoon tea mix with a plethora of outdoor adventure, world-class culinary experiences and a vibrant arts and culture scene. This combined with the wild beauty of the Pacific Ocean and old-growth rainforests set against a backdrop of the Olympic Mountains makes Victoria the perfect getaway. It was even rated as the 1st DESTINATION TO VISIT IN CANADA by the 2010 TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice Awards. You should really come here.

Interesantan i dobar tekst ...
Lep pogled na devojku sa jastrebom ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, ostrina i kontarst, lepo pokazana devojka sa jastrebom, lepe boje.
Lepo ulovljen trenutak.
Lov sa jastrebom postao je popularan u Srbiji.
Imajte lep dan, sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.
An interesting and good text ...
A nice view of a girl with a hawk ...
Good time recording, sharpness and kontarst, nice girl shown with hawks, pretty colors.
Beautifully captured moments.
Hunting with a hawk became popular in Serbia.
Have a nice day, all the best in the new week that started, good luck.

You timed your photo perfectly, coming upon the scene and pulling out your camera in time. You present the profiles of the young lady and her hawk (although perhaps it is a half-profile of the bird. He is not fully looking at you). The brilliant red blouse of the woman and the lush green of the grass complement each other. I agree with you that Vancouver is one of the most beautiful islands in the world.

Nicely spotted this pretty lady and her elegant falcon. Love the nice warm light on the subject. Like the way the grassy banks has provided for a good backdrop for the photo. Excellent photo with vibrant colours and optimum clarity. Thanks for sharing.
Graal (94162) 2014-02-17 2:16
nice scene, good captured and presentation here. Beautiful woman and falcon. Photo is well composed and done. I like it.
Have a nice week.
jacquest (17773) 2014-02-17 4:38
This is a nice scene you caught here. The girl and her bird are well placed in the image and her red shirt makes a contrast over the lawn. The shadow on her body allows our attention to fix on her smile.
Sergiom (50600) 2014-02-17 5:14
J'aime beaucoup cette composition. La dame est parfaitement placée dans l'image et nous montre bien son aigle. La chandail rouge est très attirant ainsi que son sourire.
mirosu (10942) 2014-02-17 5:21
Excellent photo in superb light & nice colors. I like the very good high angle viewpoint and the nice smiling face. And the bird, nice bonus in this excellent image.
Very well done
Wish you a very nice week.
bona (11957) 2014-02-17 6:24
nice photo of this woman with the falcon on her arm. A not so common scene to see. I like it a lot.
ikeharel (48330) 2014-02-17 7:54
This is rather unique, Danos, to have such a pet in an urban neighbourhood.
Yet, the young lady seem to be skilled for this task, have the right protectyive glove and looks very content of herslf.
Superbly taken this photo, besides the impressive bird - a beautiful lady in red.
ourania (22744) 2014-02-17 10:05
έχω δει παρόμοιες σκηνές μόνο σε φωτογραφίες και ντοκυμαντέρ ή ταινίες και δεν θα πίστευα στα μάτια μου αν βρισκόμουν μπροστά σ' αυτό το θέαμα σε ένα δημόσιο αστικό χώρο.Απλή σύνθεση και συναρπαστική εικόνα, η κυρία λάμπει από το φως και την υπερηφάνεια, το κόκκινο της μπλούζας της είναι μια ζωηρή και ευχάριστη πινελιά που δεν διαταράσσει την αρμονία της σκηνής. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,
holmertz (34647) 2014-02-17 10:11
This is a good picture with fine colours and a surprising view from above. It's surprising as well that it's legal to keep a falcon in captivity in Canada. Maybe she had a special permit for some reason or had taken it for a walk from a zoo. Who knows.
ngk (2407) 2014-02-17 10:22
Γεια σου Δάνο,
Πολύ ωραίο στιγμιότυπο. Πολύ ωραία η αντίθεση του κόκκινου της μπλούζας και του φωτεινού προσώπου της κοπελιάς με το σκούρο πράσινο του χορταριού.
Royaldevon (24324) 2014-02-17 12:17
A very well judged photograph.
The beautiful lady is perfectly placed in the frame and the direction of her view makes a very natural lead to the second focal image, the hawk.
My warm regards,
Noel_Byrne (17203) 2014-02-17 13:09
This is a beauty of a capture. The lady does indeed look so proud, and very beautiful. And who can blame her, there are not many that can relax in the sun with a magnificent bird like this on their arm! The light was absolutely perfect to allow this fantastic shot.
Thanks as always
papagolf21 (81654) 2014-02-17 14:23
Bonsoir, cher ami Danos,
Très belle proposition changeant des présentations.
C'est un art que d'élever des rapaces.
L'on sent que l'oiseau est prêt à prendre son envol.
Une image intéressante et très originale.
imageme (1092) 2014-02-17 15:13
Hi Danos, Well composed image of this woman and the bird. The shadow of hers on the lawn gave the flowers behind her a good mood. Nice perspective from above to show details of the subjects. Best regards
jmdias (50355) 2014-02-17 16:41
luck is part of the a good photo and here you got an amazing beautiful model, a curious bird and excellent conditions to take the best angle and light. excellent job. congratulations.
subhendu_bagchi (24381) 2014-02-18 1:40
interesting photo here. Charming lady, so gracefull. She has a strong heart to doing so. I like your composition. Excellent depth and clarity. Love the rich colours. Excellent one. Tfs.
krzychu30 (14986) 2014-02-18 3:08
great photo opportunity excellently utilized by You!
Interesting and so nice daily scene.I like your POV,frame and finally the timing,which captures here perfectly the happy facial expression of the girl.
Have a nice day
abmdsudi (36320) 2014-02-18 4:09
Good elevated shot in brilliant light with main subject sharp in focus, well in position and gorgeously coloured and speck of vivid red serves as strong eye pointer. Great capture. TFS
pierrefonds (53314) 2014-02-18 4:22
You have captured well the smiling expression of the woman. The point of view is showing the détails and colours of the Falcon. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.
claudeD (28872) 2014-02-18 6:15
very fine and interesting contibution to TE. Excellent picture and informative note. Very well done.I like the view very much.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
adramad (33584) 2014-02-18 8:05
A very original and great composition with this beautiful girl, preparing the hawk .... suppose to fly a little, a pretty scene on the green grass.
Very good brightness and sharpness, with beautiful colors.
Well seen and done better. I love it.
Have a good day.
Silvio1953 (111078) 2014-02-18 11:40
Ciao Danos, lovely composition with beautiful girl and superb falcon, wonderful colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
clic (13240) 2014-02-18 14:04
Geis sou Danos
Indeed, it appears as a love story between those two beauties and I presume the bird has been tamed by the lady, so if it decides to go back to wilderness for ever, the love story will turn to heartbreaks!
Quite a touching scenery indeed!
Miguel82 (17317) 2014-02-19 9:38
A hawk specialist Danos, it's somewhat rare to meet a person with that skill, excellent portrait, she looks fond of her eagle..
Perfect sharpness as usual, bright hues, all the best Danos, good evening
Sonata11 (32261) 2014-02-19 12:12
Hello Danos, super capture this scene. Indeed it is ready to fly. Wonderful compo and execution. Perfectly well done.
All the best,
jcpix (9298) 2014-02-19 18:55
Well here's something you don't see out amongst the general public! :) I've never witnessed someone with a falcon before unless it's involved with a show or sporting event, this is quite interesting to say the least. The moment you captured was perfect to have both owner and fowl in the same profile pose, and the elevated perspective adds to that strength. I'm sure this was a happy surprise to have come upon, and I'm glad you were able to seize the opportunity. Bright, detailed and colorful all around. Have a great day ahead. Take care.
elenimavrandoni (11887) 2014-02-19 20:37
Δάνο, πολύ ομορφη και απροσδόκητη στιγμή, το χρωμα ειναι εντονο και οι σκιές που δημιουργουνται δινουν μια φυσική και μοναδική σύνθεση...
geoant68 (2751) 2014-02-20 22:27
εξαιρετική φωτογραφία δρόμου με την όμορφη κυρία να κρατά τόσο υπερήφανα το γεράκι της.Σπάνια βλέπει κανείς τέτοιες σκηνές στο δρόμο παρά μόνο σε εκδηλώσεις σχετικά με αυτά τα υπέροχα πουλιά.Το φως είναι εξαιρετικό όπως και το κοντραστ των χρωμάτων,
fabbs99 (14461) 2014-02-21 1:25
Classic shot of the girl and the falcon.Very well done.TFS.
jhm (131840) 2014-02-23 3:38
These young lady has pleasure with these nice bird.
Sharpness and clarity make these picture attractive.
Excellent perspective and depth picture.
Wonderful composition, nice presentation.
Very we done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,
Didi (53333) 2014-02-23 6:51
Interesting subject but I hope to see more picture while the falcon in flying :)
shevchenko (18989) 2014-02-23 18:53
Good bird view shot to frame a happiness scenery on the field, clear to show the lady and the falcon are living happy on this place, nice sunlight and shading that add extra effect to the scenery too, thanks for sharing an impressive view.
mkamionka (28422) 2014-02-25 6:41
very attractive composition here. It reminds me a bit the idea of Leonardo da Vinci, his painting Lady with an Ermine. But here instead of a little charming animal the lady has a big bird of prey.
Very unusual view to spot in a park.
Great captured with well saturated colors and set against the juicy grass.
fritzi007 (802) 2014-02-25 11:45
really well done, very good image sharpness position, congratulations!
nikkitta (11142) 2014-02-26 7:36
What interesting scene, first time I saw a woman with a falcon and besides obviously pleased of having it
Oroginal capture and red green contrast
Well done, Victoria is really a good place to stroll
Cricri (96993) 2014-02-26 8:37
Elle est fière et heureuse d'avoir ce beau faucon comme compagnon, belle prise en hauteur, laissant voir son joli sourire, belle présentation sous une superbe lumière
dip (22912) 2014-02-26 14:41
Εδώ εκτός από την ενδιαφέρουσα γωνία λήψης μου αρέσουν τα έντονα χρώματα,ο φωτισμός και η οξύτητα,
γενικά βρίσκω πολύ ενδιαφέρουσα την όλη σκηνή!
eldancer1 (23081) 2014-02-27 7:38
If I were the falcon I wouldn't fly, I'll stay with this beautiful lady. Seriously, awesome capture of those two with good pov and sharp details. Well done, tfs.
UlfE (14599) 2014-02-28 10:56
Wonderful photo of this lady and her beautiful bird. The lighting was very attractive and the lady's red blouse is an extra bonus. I am no expert on American raptors, but I doubt that it is a falcon. I would rather think it is a hawk. It is also quite clear that hawks, such as Harris hawk, are used for falconry in Canada and the U.S. TFS and have a nice weekend!
kato (11102) 2014-03-10 23:12
You're capturing well this snapshot by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the spectacle in which this lady sits down and keeps their falcon on the green lawn. She looks like so happy. The whole is also managed well by a good light control. And, some pink flowers on lawn dra out the gentleness in the whole.
