The subject is as the title states. The difficulty here was our bird flying through an area of mixed light so timing was crucial to avoid (as much as possible) a half-lit subject.

Having the patience and waiting until the Owl reaches the fully lit area and using significant -EC makes for a great dark non-distracting background in my opinion.

You caught the moment here. Great capture. Well lit.


A great image of this most graceful of our Silent Predators.
