I was lucky this evening. I came across this little chap. This is a young from this year. They are three of them. This is the first one I could photograph.
There is a place about 5 miles from my home where there is a pair of barn owl. They have been there for years. The best way to photograph them is from the car. Early ..very early in the morning.
Three time the birds flew…From post to post….
I like the light on this one, lovely
The one that got away…Unfortunately the owl flew away from me. I can only think what would the picture had been if it had come towards me…
For the last Month , I have been trying to get picture of a local barn owl.
Out of 15 outing, I dipped 13 time. I could see the bird almost every time, but there was always something….
Three days ago, I did get quite close….They are still a big crop , but I like the colours….
Hopefully , I will have more chance to photograph this incredible bird.
Another recce. I was after hare in corn…but came a barn owl….
The barn owl was about 6/7 metres off the ground…on a dead tree…I was about 80 to 100 metres away and the bird did not seem to be worry.
500mm and 1.4
500mm and 2x slight crop
500mm and 2 time converter, heavy crop, Still 30mg file…
The picture quality taken with new 2 time converter with the new lens (Mk II LENS) is amazing…
