Really, really amazing sharpness. I do still wish that there was a bit more negative space to the right to show where the Owl is going to.

Where I live a lot of the animals are starting to come to the house, I've never seen so many raccoons, possums, owls and squirrels as I have around lately I live in the city!

Most owls are not actually nocturnal, most are crepuscular (they hunt at dawn and dusk), and some are even diurnal (active at day). Only about one third of the known species of owl are truly nocturnal.

The ones I have around here are dusk/dawn and used to have one out at night.

It's amazing..I love this. Simply..amazing shot. It's beautiful and the owl is in flight, the background colors and the look of the background just add to the vividness of the owl. Great job ^_^ hehe. Such a pretty owl..almost like you could pet the owl even.

great shot, roughly how close were you to this owl and was this one of the owls from a rescue center. I tried again on the weekend to sneak up on the great horned owl but just can't get anywhere near the bird. Just wondering, really beautiful capture

This is one of two wild SEOs that I am working on Shuk. Luckily they are hunting over some waste land on an industrial park and are very approachable. This is taken from the car on the side of the road, distance was about 20 metres

it is great to be able to watch them long enough to see hunting patternes and such. I do wish it would stop snowing here, it is making is so hard to get anywhere close to the few owls I have spotted

wait.. SEO is short eared owl right? I don't see any ears.. just yesterday I went to a natural history museum and they had a SEO specimen, and it had the tiny little tufts of feathers they call ears... :confused:
Reply
:iconphotosbykev:
Photosbykev Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2007  Hobbyist Photographer
The tufted ears are normal found on Long eared Owls and a couple of others species. It isn't actually their ears just feather tufts as you said. People think that the tufts are there to break up the outline of the birds head when it is perched in a tree

:iconmeihua:
meihua Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2007
yes, I know they're not actually ears.. but why is it called the short eared owl if it has no tufts?
Reply
:iconphotosbykev:
Photosbykev Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2007  Hobbyist Photographer
because you can't normally see them ? Short-eared Owl sounds better than No-eared Owl :rofl:
