I found this on another list and shamelessly forward it to birding-aus.
An Eagle Owl coming in for the “kill” (to the handler) directly toward the 
camera.  The last two or three seconds are amazing - the braking action of the 
wings, the feathers ruffling and the talons opening and spreading. Interesting 
to watch the corrections in the flight path as the bird comes in.  Click on 
link below and use full screen for best viewing.                
Regards, Clive.
