Western Screech Owl

Third in a series (of ten) of the rescued raptors we were privileged to observe and photograph on Keith Bauer’s Bosque del Apache workshop.

Pertinent technical details or techniques to help others learn:

Canon 7D Mark II; Sigma 150-600 mm at 252 mm; 1/160 at f6.3; ISO 100

I love the intense look, daring you to look down first. The detail is gorgeous, and the light and soft background works very well, as it does in your two previous rescued birds. Looking forward to the rest of the series - I hope there are lots of owls among them :smiley:

Looks like you had a lot of fun with this part of our workshop. Some very nice images of these educational birds!

Really nice detail and great eyes.
well-done!
