The owl was perched on fence post at busy airport with heavy car traffic. I captured with 600mm from car window mount. It was more like 15-20yds away. I Never exit my vehicle. I totally agree on respect. When an owl is uncomfortable it leaves. This owl is very comfortable. The image just shows expression, it does not describe the conditions it was shot under. I photographed the young male for about 5 minutes and I left the owl where we met, on the fence post. I feel photographers have more respect than birdwatchers who jump out of their car and approach the bird when they get the chance. Not all, but many.
