    You've Been Barred

     
    My days off are often spent traveling around looking for wildlife photo opportunities.

    A day that started as a search for Snowy Owls ended with a call from a friend who was nearby, snapping shots of a Barred Owl perched in a tree. Shortly after arriving on scene and capturing some great perch shots, the owl looked intent and ready to fly. Just out of sight from me was a mouse or a vole in the snow covered ditch.

    My camera was firing at 8 frames (pictures) per second and caught the owl rocketing through the air. Each image caught the owl in its various flight positions. From a shape like a bullet to landing in the snow. Out of all of these shots, this full wing shot was the winner for the day. Many barred owls are photographed but I have yet to see a full wing shot at this angle.

    Wildlife photography is all about patience, being in the right place, hanging with people who share the same passion and at the end of it all, some great luck!
