Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Wow!  Shocked
So if that was filmed at 1000fps and it lasts for 59seconds, on showing it at 25fps, it means all that wing control, all that feather fluttering, all the snap opening of claws actually lasted 1.25 seconds of real time !!!!!!!!!!!!!    Huh

That is control...

The turf grass guy in me keeps looking at those footprints in the grass thinking someone was walking around on frosty turf from the looks of those sunken, black footprints.

And the owl is pretty sweet!
