I do like Barn Owls, taken a little while ago.

Beautiful shot. I've only seen a couple Barn Owls from a distance...never had the pleasure of photographing them, though.

Thanks for your comments guys.

islanderMV, this photo was taken last year with the mki 300f2.8 lens on a Canon 7D. This bird was hand reared and eventually released in the wild. It has never left its area of birth and has paired up with another barn owl. I know the owner of the land and was told that they were providing photo opportunities. I was hidden behind a stone wall with camera on bean bag, I was also partially covered in a canvas top to hide my form, Just waited and managed 5 shots. I was no more than 10metres away from the bird.

I did go back to the same spot but never got the same luck again.

KerryB, it would have heard my heart beating from under the canvas and flown away! ;)  One of those moments that I typically blow.

Thanks candyman, I seem to have more than my share of luck catching such things.  It really makes me chuckle cause I'm a pretty poor photographer just firing away! ;D  It's all about fun and I'm having fun.

Hey someone's out to get me!  Seems I've been stuck at 819 posts for a long time - is there no hope of getting beyond a 1DMark 4 >:( :(  ;)  What gives?
