White Faced Scops Owl Eye

© Copyright Dan Harrod 2009

 

The above image was taken with one arm, on the other arm I had a falconry glove on which was sitting this lovely little White Faced Scops Owl. I held out my arm as gently as possibly and held up my Nikon and shot a few macro shots. A D300 + Battery grip ( containing 8x AA batteries ) + 105mm VR macro is rather heavy - especially when you have an owl on the other arm !

 

Thank you so much to my good friend Amy for the Bird of Prey and Owl Handling Experience she bought me for my birthday. Check out her photostream here :
