Haven’t posted in a bit. Work got a little busy on me. Shot this just before my last post. Although I spent hours and hours with these owls over numerous years, this was the only food exchange I ever saw in the open. In post, I cropped a little bit, burned the perch and some hot owl feathers, sharpened, and reduced some of the blues/cyans. All C&C welcome.

A great behavioral shot, with nice detail in the owls. I wish the one’s eye was either fully closed or open. You might consider playing around with the sky so there is some luminosity contrast between the sky and owls.
Nice action on the food transfer. I like that you had lots of dof and good shutter speed to capture the detail. Well done.
Very good action, Lyle. The bright light is still showing through, but the action is certainly worth that minor issue. Very well done.
