The owl chicks fi­nally swooped down from the win­dow and landed on the perches to feast on the meal­worms. They were wary at first and kept look­ing back at the hide, so I was hes­i­tant to take any pho­tos. “If you give them a few min­utes to tuck into the food, they’ll not worry about the move­ment of your lens as much,” El­liott said. So I did just that, and man­aged to snap this shot of one chick be­tween beakfuls. I used sin­gle-point aut­o­fo­cus to get the owl’s eye in fo­cus. I was tempted to in­crease the aper­ture to get the whole bird in fo­cus, but El­liott re­minded me that as long as the eyes are in fo­cus, the rest of the bird doesn’t mat­ter too much.
