  • Great Horned Owl

    We knew where this guy was, so we packed up the camera gear, tripod, light stands, lights, Radio controls and did a 2.5 mile hike (each way) in 8 inches of snow to get to where he was roosting.

    A three second burst of images and it was all over….

      I would literally die for that image! I've been looking for a great Horned owl to image since forever. Great image...

          A long way to walk for just three seconds, but so so worth it. A beautiful shot, TFS.

            Super cool picture, I feel I need to duck out of the way to let it past! Thanks for sharing.

              Thanks all -

              It was pretty neat - owls are silent flyers - barely even heard himm fly over my head. Big Bird!

              One mistake I made on the initial post - I used a 70-200 f2.8 IS! Probably on about 180mm..

                Dammit! Will you people stop posting pics of owls?! It's really annoying!

                What was the lighting setup? 2 strobes @ 45* either side on TTL (w/ maybe a little -EC)? It's about the only thing I can think to do for such an "iffy" situation. I can't imagine you actually had even a full 3sec.

                  Brilliant!! I would love to someday get a shot like this but I am still waiting to "see" an owl in the wild let alone attempt to photograph it.
