p.1 #1 · You make me sick!


Since I might never get another opportunity to photograph a GHO family like this again I am going to milk it for all its worth.
So the first shot is just before the money shot....male owl opens its mouth and prepares to upchuck a pellet...photographer fires away excited to catch the pellet in free fall...buffer fills, photog curses...end of the effing story...aargh!
The others are of the owlets and more interesting to me at least, the perspective of mother owl outside of the nest. It is in this setting that you can really see just how huge she is in comparison to the nest and owlets. I only wish I had male and female side by side but no luck.
And finally, 1 whited winged dove in flight with an oh so busy background..."it could have been a contender"
Thirty minutes to game 3 of Stanley Cup Playoffs....have Monarchs and Swallowtails flying around in my stomach...back after the game friends
Eric

1 "You make me sick"






2 "Listen, mom's out...wanna raid the liquor cabinet?"






3 "Oh crap, I think she was listening"






4 White winged dove with a background as busy as a NYC street at rush hour

That first shot could have been "it". Toooooo bad! I've never seen an owl bring up a pellet. FYI; the new Canon 1D-X has about 50 shots in the buffer! No more missed ops! Who are you cheering for? Don

Game just went into overtime

Gotta love the commentary Eric Love the liquor cabinet bit

Oh my that Dove is too cool. Sometimes holding the shutter down pays off, sometimes it doesn't. UDMA cards 600x buys you more shots per buffer

Oh yeah Owls, I would be milking themselves. Speaking of which I finally culled my last folder of Snowy's an hour ago

WWD, yes that is a busy BG but thankfully not a busy foreground Select the bird and drop back the light level on that BG if you want better separation and depth

Owls rock!

Hi Eric,

That first photo is fabulous! Seeing the chicks is fun and I bet we get another opportunity though not this year. That dove is a beauty.

Awesome set Eric!! So cool to see them at the nest like this. Really great work. Dove is great too - a little noisy but a great capture.
