    last ones for a while

    I think these are Tawny Owls, not the best shots in the world but as they are the only shots I have of this Owl I thought I'd post them

    there are no owls in my collection, so i would be glad to have some like those :p

    They are not perfect, but not bad by no means either. I quite like the second for the wings being at a less usual angle than often captured.

    I think they are very good action shots. Having more scenery around the subject gives it the mood of what is going on.

    Well captured - I am hoping to get some shots of the Barn Owls over the washes, but they usually wait until light is fading. Any ideas how I can get the bats that were whisling by my face yesterday evening?

    Owls have to be one of the hardest raptors to catch out in the wild... so I say you did a great job!! I have only seen owls once... a strange occurance in a nearby town with 20 short ears sitting in one tree... but I couldnt get close enough to get anything like these shots...

    only thing I can think of is with an infa-red camera or camcorder with nightshot

    gonna have to disappoint you, these were not in the wild but at the same bird of prey centre as my other 8 or so threads
