Great owl shots! Looks like my morning jaunt was a little wetter here in SoCal.
This little guy tried without success for twenty minutes to swallow this fish.

Saw it at my Elementary School. My dad ran back to the house to tell me to get the camera and go there.

Got a cold. Turned this in months later and also get a school award for it. Totally worth it ^-^

This is as close as I could get to these cormorants, even stealthing behind rocks. I love the blue/green eyes however

Lovely! I love those birds. Many of them have distinctive looking heads. I mean like they seem to show you a character from a story...

What did you use to shoot this picture? What were your settings and time of day?

Thank you so much.

I believe I shot in manual.
I used 5D III, ISO 400, 1/640, f4.5, 70-200, 2.8 IS II @ 200 mm.  I was about 15 feet away, and it was a bit overcast.

This little guy tried without success for twenty minutes to swallow this fish.

Thanks Oof!  You're shot of this little guy is amazing!  Birds never cease to amaze me!  I can't believe he could even hold a fish that size from breaking loose of his grip!  Great and unique capture!

All the best,
Ken
