Barn Owl flying near a hill

Barn Owl flying near a hill – Nikon D300, f6.3, 1/2000, ISO 500, +0.3 EV, Nikkor 200-400mm VR with 1.4 TC at 400mm, natural light, not baited or called in

I wanted to share a few more Barn Owl images this morning that I like. Even though the Barn Owl is small in the frame in this file I like it because it shows more of the owl’s habitat than a close up would.

And this one is a close up of a Barn Owl flying past me, I get more of a sense of the size of the bird and a great look at its very dark eye.

Perched Barn Owl images might not be as dynamic as those when the owl’s are in flight but I enjoy how this shows the owls’ shape, plumage patterns, the profile of the face and just a hint of blood on the owl’s bill.

Barn Owl flying over a snowy wetlandBarn Owl flying over a snowy wetland – Nikon D300, f7.1, 1/1600, ISO 500, +0.7 EV, Nikkor 200-400mm VR with 1.4 TC at 400mm, natural light, not baited or called in

I love the pose as well as the background in this image, the great view of the talons and the look in the bird’s eyes.

Barn Owls fascinate me, perched, in flight, asleep or huddled against the cold.
