The eagles of the ramparts

"For your own safety, do not raise your arms or stand up during the performance."
 So began the equestrian falconry show that we attended in Provins. The show featured raptors from several species: falcons, hawks, kites, owls, eagles, and even vultures - all of which flew over the ramparts and just inches over our heads.  

It's OK. He won't hurt you.
Thank goodness for digital film. We took several hundred photos each. . .
