I wandered down to a spot where I was tipped off about some Barn Owls nesting this afternoon.
I didn't hope for to much,it was almost dusk before they showed up and the light was terrible,also the area where they were hunting was very open and it was difficult to get close without spooking them.
I was actually quite pleased with the images in the end and will definitely go back when we finally get some decent weather.

Unreal. I can't believe that you shot those at ISO 3200 and they came out that clean. 5D? Which Lens were you using?

500mm! :shock:

Wow!
And you still get such super clear photo in that LOW light? NeatImage was your friend, wasn't it? Given you were set to ISO 3200...! Wonderful photos. I particularly like the first!!!

:thumbup: Love'em both! And you can get shots this good when the light's not in your favour, great job. Dig how you caught the own scanning for prey in the first one.

Both are very nice shots. I'm actually drawn to the second one for some reason.
