Harry has cap­tured the clas­sic lit­tle owl por­trait. The owl is in a great po­si­tion, perched front/side on with its head turned, look­ing just past the lens. It’s one of the fledglings, so doesn’t yet have those pierc­ing yel­low eyes, nor the in­fa­mous scowl. Great to see the talons grip­ping on to the wood­work. Shoot­ing on a D300s and 500mm f/4, the fram­ing is a lit­tle tight at that close range, but can’t be helped on a fixed perch. The aper­ture is wide open, dif­fus­ing that red-brick wall in the back­ground and re­ally mak­ing the sub­ject ping out. All in all, a great ef­fort and surely a shot to be proud of.
