Setting Sun and some Short Eared Owls

My 5th visit to my most local Short Eared Owl site finally yielded me with my best images to date, once again they aren't super close ups but in some way they pleased me more as they show the birds in their environment, something that isn't always shown. Hope you enjoy them!


  1. Hi Ben

    I agree with you - the environment included makes for a very interesting photograph. Someone once commented that these type of shots are like you are on a walk and looking at the owl, rather than looking at a photograph. Fantastic light makes for super-sharp images here.

  2. Cheers for the comments Christian, totally agree with what you are saying. I spent the winter semi-attempting to get a decent close up, ended up with these but am still happy and maybe these have a bit more to them than just a close up!
