Photographed today in North Wales.
Well quite annoyed... (thanks,)
Nice picture and good use of natural light.
Wow, brilliant shot Ron! Gorgeous bird, the perfect perch and great background! Spot On! CLick!!!
excellent composition, colour and texture, natural history record well seen and caught and should grace any book on British and European birds, eyes pin sharp, guddun.
Great shot with good dof.
Fantastic shot, great detail and clarity. Love the light focusing on the bird.
Thanks for the comments. At least 4 and possibly 5 of these owls have moved onto a developing industrial estate in North Wales. By parking the car at the edge of one of the vacant plots and waiting, one is usually rewarded by the sight of one of thes magnificent birds flying close by. I was very lucky today because this individual landed on a perch placed there especially by a keen photographer (other than me). That photographer was not there today but I am very grateful to whoever it was! The bird's left eye and most of the left side of his face was slightly darker than the right and I have adjusted this in the software, the background has not been changed.
That's interesting, I was talking to a chap at Parkgate a few weeks back and he was saying there was an industrial estate near him in N.Wales where he would go and just sit in his car and they would fly around. Maybe it was you, or the guy who put the perch there?
I really love this one. Beautifully exposed (and sensitively adjusted).
Superb. What! you werent at the Wales v Ireland game? Alan.
Lovely shot Ron, well done.
You nailed this one Ron . Beautiful study
ps as I travel from Gloucester to Anglesey tomorrow do I turn left or right at Bangor to find them? *grin*
Fantastic shot, nice to see a real wild owl shot for a change.
Crisp as!! Well shot.
Stunning image and detail.
Superb shot, Ron - just look at those wonderful eyes.
Top class image, great light and clarity. Well done Ron, excellent work.
Wow - that is such a brillian shot! x
Fantastic image Ron, very very good work
This is a cracker Ron. Even more so by the fact that it is natural and not a captive bird. You have uploaded some fabulous work recently. Keep up the good work.
Classy image!! Perfect shot..! congrats, Ron.
Ron, I think I'm about to be sick lol. What an amazing and wild capture. I see that you are putting your new 500mm lens to great use. Fantastic!!!!!
Superb shot Ron.
A very big thank-you to all who have commented.
Excellent Ron, such sharp detail and colours all superb! very well taken.
I think they are magnificent looking birds and you've captured it in beautiful light. I was a birdwatcher when I was a kid, and I saw one of these that was passing through the area where I lived. Brings back memories.
Super shot Ron, very nice indeed
Excellent capture. Got the light even in both eyes which can be challenging with one of these. What a lens combo.
Stunning. Very envious
How did i miss this one, stunning. Click. Mike
A superb image Ron. Beautifully lit.
