Hello friends, Yesterday (Thursday)
I went to the Great Gray Owl but
I did not found it, instead I found
a Barred Owl that I photographed in-flight
and that became my 67th bird species that
I am photographing in-flight :)

And it is becoming my
photo #999 on TN !

1/4000s f/7.1 ISO1000
50mm (35mm eq:75mm)

from the All About Birds website

« The Barred Owl’s hooting call, “Who cooks
for you? Who cooks for you-all?” is a classic
sound of old forests and treed swamps. But this
attractive owl, with soulful brown eyes and
brown-and-white-striped plumage, can also pass
completely unnoticed as it flies noiselessly
through the dense canopy or snoozes on a tree limb.

Originally a bird of the east, during the twentieth
century it spread through the Pacific Northwest
and southward into California. »

Hello Asbed,
Despite the branch across it this is a good in-flight capture of the Barred Owl with details of the undeside and stretched out wings seen with fine sharpness and natural colours against the clear sky.
Thanks and best regards for the weekend,

Hi Asbed,

A remarkable picture ... too bad the few twigs were in the way, but awsome any way. You really caught him open and in great focus. Such a rare POV.

Hello Asbed
this view is so interesting. The top up capture of the bird is so sharp with the feathers and its patterns is so well defined.
exciting work and you have a swift reaction towards the flight.
