I photographed a screech owl in a riverbank nearby. It is the first experience. I photograph it with 600mmx1.4 telecon, a focus lens worked by hand.

Adorei a foto. É diferente do que costumamos ver e é um clique não muito. A expressão da coruja tá ótima. Foco muito bom.



G'day Kona
Your shot is very good for a first experience.
Nice and sharp, but its a shame the grass has intruded where it has.

Hi Kona, very nice crisp capture of that face with those amazing eyes. This looks like a difficult shot. It looks like he was coming in fast and low.

Thanks, John

wow, amazing shot

Una captura con el DOF extremadamente escaso que brinda un efecto muy particular con el ave totalmente en foco y todo lo demás fuera del mismo.
El timing de la imagen es muy bueno con apropiado punto de vista para captar el vuelo del ave y su penetrante mirada.
Un cordial saludo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo

A capture with DOF extremely tight that offers an effect very peculiar with the bird totally in focus and everything the rest outside of the same one.
The timing of the image is very good with appropriate point of view to capture the flight of bird and your penetrating look.
A cordial greeting from Buenos Aires... Ricardo
