Hitting My Mark - Male Snowy Owl

Hitting My Mark - Male Snowy Owl

What a great way to finish this year's Snowy Owl season with this evasive old male coming in for a landing on his post.

Canon 7D with 400L 5.6 lens @ 1/1250, f16, ISO 400. What a time NOT to have my 500 f4 lens in the field beside me!

About 30% of the image cropped away, the usual corrections. Despeckling of the background and spot desaturation of two small colour spots far in the background (probably roofs). Three small corn stalks clonned away.



other sizes: small medium original
