I had a superb time with the owls on Sunday. After a slow start things quickly picked up and several owls were showing very very well indeed and in some wonderful light.

Asio flammeus - Short-eared Owl

Li algures que uma das características identificativas das Corujas do Nabal é apresentarem uma "face" com um aspecto maléfico. Claro que de maléficas nada têm mas se for sugestionável esta poderia estar a querer livrar-se do fotógrafo e a fazer "cara de má"

I have read somewhere that one of the identifying characteristics of the Short-eared owl is that they have a "face" with an evil aspect. Of course the are not malevolent but we can think that she want to get rid of the photographer and to do "Malefic face"

Asio flammeus - Short-eared Owl

We've spend hours waiting on the side of this massive lupinfield hoping for one of the (at least four) owls to come close. At the end this was the best shot I mannaged.

I found this bird on the same post 364 days later than the year before. A creature of habit perhaps? Try link below.

Time to bid adieu to these lovely and often photographed owls as they begin their journey to breeding territories.

Just enough light left to capture these shots of the local short eared owls. Lots of grain in this but I don't mind it

Short Eared Owl (Asio flammeus)

Short-eared Owl

 

The Short-eared Owl (Asio flammeus) is a species of typical owl (family Strigidae). Owls belonging to genus Asio are known as the eared owls, as they have tufts of feathers resembling mammalian ears. These "ear" tufts may or may not be visible. Asio flammeus will display its tufts when in a defensive pose; although it’s very short tufts are usually not visible. The short-eared owl is found in open country and grasslands. The scientific name is from Latin. The genus name Asio is a type of eared owl, and flammeus means "flame-colored".

It is surprising how quickly and gracefully these birds can change direction or go into a dive. This ones in for the kill.

This year I spent quite a lot of time up North with these Asio Flammeus near Camano Island. It's been a wicked fun learning curve and I hope it can continue next year. That's of they don't flood the area and drown the voles!!

 

Standwood, Washington

I recently visited my mother in the Cotswolds, little did I know that only fifteen miles away was an excellent site to observe and photograph the very beautiful Short-eared Owls. Over a three hour period we were treated to multiple close passes, dives and mid-air battles by the five individuals around on this day.

 

I was very tempted to add an extra day to our trip just to go back for another go, but decided that sometimes its better to walkaway on a high and enjoy the moment for what it was.

 

I've also recently added a couple of wee bits of gear to my kit bag so I was really keen to give them a good blast. I must admit the combination of the 600mm f4 on the 1DX in these circumstances was absolutely superb. The 300mm f2.8 lens was used by my good lady and proved itself to be (as expected) razor sharp and fast.

 

More images of the SEO's will be posted to my website over the next week or so.

I posted two shots of this Short-eared Owl. I caught it in the failing light which is when they are the most active.
