p.1 #1 · My first owl!


My hearing may be going slowly but my eyesight sure as heck is not! I spotted this guy from the back of my house and I got as close as I could. I got off several shots despite the tangle of branches in the way. My son ran out and I told him to be quiet (maybe 10 seconds went by), I turned around and he was gone. Talk about quiet. This is the best one.

**I took the time to clone out the branches in the original image using CS5 (I suck at cloning) and I also did little bit of noise reduction. I think the reworked image looks a bit better now.

Thanks Socrate. I did not think I was going to get one decent one, but sometimes my K-5 does amazing things.

Thanks Tim, I feel fortunate to have gotten one in focus. At least I know he is there now though.

Big congrats! I know what a thrill that is.
Now that you know it might be around you can keep an eye out for it.
