Puy du Fou Part 2 Le Bal des Oiseaux Fantômes

Le Bal des Oiseaux Fantômes (The Phantom Birds Dance) is a bird of prey show. I loved it. I went and saw it twice (and skipped other things to do so).
Unlike most bird of prey shows I had seen before, this one has a story with princesses and knights in armour... It also has many, many birds...not just eagles, falcons and vultures...but owls, a secretary bird ( those who hunt snakes), boars, dogs, a horse...which make the whole thing very magical. Add to that the birds almost touch you when flying overhead...

This photo cracks me up, I guess that guy found his animal spirit in the form of a vulture
Hot air balloon from which birds take off
Final dance
I didn't get a bird on my head :( 
It was easier to take photos in the aviary

I'd totally go twice as well, having the birds fly so close & free must be amazing..
