20130308 - 1 027 SERIES - Great Horned Owl HP 1r2.jpg


Two images of a GHO perched below its nest. No sign of an Owl on the nest; however, it may just not be visible. This was the first time that I had good light when shooting this Owl. The nest is probably some 120 feet (40 meters) above the ground. The shots were hand-held with the lens barrel leaning against a tree trunk.

Nikon D800 ,Nikkor 300mm f/4 ED-IF AF-S
1/400s f/6.7 at 500.0mm iso640 full exif

other sizes: small medium original
