Some shots of Barn Owls in flight
CLICK IMAGES FOR HIGH RES VERSIONS
love the first one, the way its head is turned, eye contact. the way the flowers start to blur quickly is great. the background of the second is nice.
Oh, bang... and here they are. Yep, magnificent!
That first one is special, with the eye-contact and wing position of the owl, that nice rock in the foreground, and the way the colours are all so complementary
Amazing LP, errr Lostprophet...
Amazing shots - especially the first, the eye contact, the action, the rareity of seeing let alone capturing such a sight! (even in displays)
Nicely done! The first shot attracts my attention, tool me a second to work out what was happening.. I think the perspective and relationship in sizes throws you out for a second.
whoa, kun-fu owl in the first one. if you're quick with the copyrights you can make a movie out of it
Well they were shot using a Canon 1D mkII with a 300mm F2.8 IS L lens
I was using AI Servo focussing with all 45 AF points selected so the camera can track more easily
And the Owl had just taken off from the boulder in the first shot, its a lot bigger than the owl, I'd guess the Owl was maybe 6 or 7 inches infront of the boulder
I can imagine the first as the front page of a wildlife magasine. Great shot!
Excellent as always Andy. That first shot is right on:thumbup::thumbup:
