I never thought I’d get such a stun­ningly vi­brant im­age of these owls. It was late in the night and the sun had al­ready gone down. There was no rim-light from the sun­set, and my ISO was go­ing up and up. I was at the lim­its of my D300s’s im­age sen­sor’s sen­si­tiv­ity, but I man­aged to snap this one just in time. The bright orange back­ground is the red bricks on the wall be­hind (there are 340 bricks – I counted them to stay alert over the 10 hours we were wait­ing!) and it makes this shot pop. The owl was pos­ing for me and I love the way it looks. They don’t look lit­tle at all, they’re mag­nif­i­cent. It’s a tight crop be­cause the bird was so close, but I think that’s good – you can see its talons wrapped around the post.
