Thread: Great Horned Owl

    Great Horned Owl

    We knew where this guy was, so we packed up the camera gear, tripod, light stands, lights, Radio controls and did a 2.5 mile hike (each way) in 8 inches of snow to get to where he was roosting.

    A three second burst of images and it was all over….

    Nicely done, Jaime. Having spent a little time with Owls lately I have realized they are much faster than I once thought. They fly so effortless and quietly it is no wonder why they are such successful hunters and so rarely seen. Rarely in comparison to the times they are around vs seen.

    Well rewarded for your efforts I'd say.

    Worth the effort. I like the pointed predatory stare and the texture and colour of the old barn boards complements the owls colour.
