#4 and 5 for me. Great looks and nice colouring. A bit more NR would help these images immensely. Don


Thanks Don, I appreciate the suggestion

Herb,
This is an amazing series... so many lifetime images in one shoot. I really like the 7th image... something about the interplay between the landscape and the diving bird.

Humbled by your work!

Great action! how much did you have to crop?
I always want to shoot this bird, but don't know how to get to one in the twilight.

I've always been partial to owl images, but these stand out no matter what! I think that #7 is a great action pose.


Thanks for the pick

Amazing stuff...

I am just curious.. is wearing camouflage a really important part of getting shots like these? Owls are so ridiculously hard to spot, I've only managed to shoot one once (a barred owl) in my entire life.. most of the time I can hear them and have zero chance of figuring out which direction to even point my camera.

But then again I am not an avid bird watcher & don't have time to go do this every week.

I know I'm not going to come into a 500/4 but wearing the right clothes might be more attainable.


I've had a lot of success cloaking myself with camouflage or just earth tone colored clothing, light green, beige, brown. After knowing the raptors favorite haunts ( which may take several days to find out ) I just set up and wait.

I didn't crop much at all on these.
