Congratulations to AGeoJO for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 11 votes - View Previous Winners


This was from several weeks ago. I was aiming at this guy that was perching on the ledge near the burrow. All the sudden, it launched towards my direction. It saw a June bug behind me at some distance and that's what the owl was after. I was able to fire 5 shots in 0.5 seconds and the show was over. The first one was a tad blurry and the last one showed only a part of the owl. And it managed not to hit me . So, here are the 3 middle frames then...

Focus is good, which is what you need to such sequences. Very well done. The last image is superb.

Nice capture! There was probably a bug flying right above you by the looks of it!
