    Evening all, I just finished processing some photos I took of the Burrowing Owls in Florida - plus, I also just put the finishing touches to a video I made to show the experience. It's something I want to start doing more of, showing the process involved in getting the shots I take. It's only my second video (and first one that actually required editing lots of clips) so bare with me as I know I still have lots to learn of this new skill...oh and I have never had a good 'reading' voice in my opinion but I'm hoping it all comes together and works ok...!?!

    You can view the video here.

    And here are a couple of pics, more can be seen on the same link above. Enjoy :)

    I'm still waiting to capture my first Burrowing Owl in the wild. I just love those little owls! Great series!

    Very nice pictures!

    To show just how little I pay attention....Brian Piccolo Park isn't 10 minutes from my house!! Never, ever knew there was anything but Moskovy Ducks there!?!?!:banghead:

    Beautiful shots, love the last one, only if the background was a bit darker to make the owl pop out

    These are wonderful. I just got a couple of pix of these guys at the Phoenix Zoo a couple of weeks ago but, knowing you got them in the wild, makes them more interesting to me :) #3 is my favorite. On your video, I love the image of the owl next to the warning sign.

    The images are wonderful and I really enjoyed the video. It was extremely informative and seeing it just made the photos that much better for me.

    Gorgeous shots! I liked the video too, to see where you found them (so close to the road, and the park!). And to see the gear you used. How wonderful to get 3 of them so close together like that. This was a very enjoyable thread.
