Barn Owl

By CaroleS
Not quite what I was expecting to find at the Cornish Steam and Country Fair today at Stithians in Cornwall. Just intended to try out the zoom lens on my Olympus Pen and see what happened.GrinGrinGrinGrin

That's a super find, Carole, much more fun photographing than things steam-related Wink A great capture and presentation. Carol

The lighting is just perfect to show up the owl against the dark b/g, Carole, and the detail is immaculate.
Your Olympus Pen zoom delivering the goods OK.

Superb Carole. The eyes are so dark there is normally no detail at all but you have got a lovely catchlight - this is a terrific shot

What a beautiful barnowl portrait Carole, the feather details are wonderful and you've exposed this one perfectly. This is much better than anything Tomcat managed on his photography day at the Barn Owl Centre in Gloucester and he spent 70 for the privelege!Grin
