Barn Owl Tyto alba in flight hunting at night

    Newer Older

    Barn Owl Tyto alba in flight hunting at night, it has taken me several years of hard work to get these images. This one is the very posture I wanted, however I would like the face just lifted and facing the camera a little more, perhaps; but the concentration of hunting is better depicted with the facial position as it is.
    Canon EOS1DsMkIII, 600mmf4IS, 2 X 550EX flash guns, lamps for seeing and focus assist.
