As a followup to my previous post, I have had the profound fortune of having this Great Gray Owl around over the last couple of weeks. I thought I would share a few more of my favorite shots since my last post.

Awesome. I would kill for this opportunity to shoot this beautiful bird for weeks at a time.

Love the DOF in #1, but the last image is spectacular. I love the angle on the feet.

I've become increasing jealous of all the magnificent images of great grey owls having never seen one in the wild. And this set is very special....great lighting and poses/positions Mike.

Thanks Geoff. This was a huge year for Great Gray's in my area. This particular one was only 10 minutes from my house, so it was quite convenient.

Thanks Eric! Best of luck on finding one, it is always quite an experience. This particular owl has been extremely easy to photograph. In fact here is a picture my 7 year old son took with a Canon 6D + 70-200 2.8 +1.4xtc @98mm







Here is a shot I took of him taking the image above. 5DIII + 400 5.6L
