About This Image

Barred Owl has been visiting our property the past few evenings, to our surprise. Guess it's hunting for squirrels etc that feed here.
This was captured from the open front window with telephoto lens, Canon 100-400mm L. hand held.
We first saw the owl here around midnite a few days prior to this, - so I got a few night shots of it also.
Then it showed up here yesterday just before dusk. We believe it lives in a wooded area near here.

What a great shot of the owl and like Steve has said, even more impressive as it was hand held. If it was me, it would be all blurry. I love the extra little touch you are adding to your photos also.

Hi Steve, thanks for the nice comments, - the lens is heavy too :) but is my most used lens and favourite one, really.

A great shot, Alandra, and all the more impressive for being hand-held with a pretty long lens. You must have very steady hands!

many thanks, Carol, Alex and Beverly, for the nice comments. Thought the same, Alex, such an "angelic" look on its face.
