European Eagle Owl

By daffydill56
Another from my outing to the Barn Owl Centre.

This European Eagle Owl was amazing, and with a wingspan of 5' you can imagine how it felt having him flying toward you and watching through the viewfinder! A terrific experience!!

V1 is a cropped version of the original...v2.
V3 hopefully shows you his massive wingspan.

Thanks for your C & C's on my previous upload.

Best Wishes,

Fran Smile

Awesome captures Fran, V1 for me even though they are all great shots, thats not me being bias either. Good to hear the experience of him coming down the lense was also good too, made me laugh lol.

Nice to see you controlled those whites under his beak!
