Re: Barred Owl

Bet the owl didn't give a hoot that you photographed him through glass.

Re: Barred Owl

Thanks for the encouraging comments

I almost didn't bother taking any shots of him, as the light is poo, but I'm nopw glad I did. A nice twilight habitat for the Owl, even has a stream etc, just rubbish to photograph

A Barred Owl lives in the woods behind my house, I sometimes see it, but often hear it! If you are interested here is a link http://www.owlpages.com/owls.php?gen...&species=varia

They make an awesome hooting sound

Dawn- Thanks ,I have tried Mono, and I like this shot in Mono What do you think?
