Cookie28...nice owl shot, he looks sleepy
A few from today.
Now, whenever he is anywhere near and I approach the canal, my heron fishing friend insists we go fishing. Another half loaf of bread wasted with no results (he is so inept at this). Then, a new stranger swoops in but he is very timid of me and quickly takes off every time I approach or even throw some bread his way. He keeps coming back to check us out and this gets my friend very defensive. He puffs himself up by ruffling his feathers and stares down the newcomer. After chasing each other around, the newcomer finally takes off for good and I get my first half decent, almost in focus BIF photo (1 shot out of 20 tries as they chased each other around the canal). All the others were either blurry blobs or the bird was not even in the frame
I need tons more practice.
If you look closely, you can see my silhouette reflected in heron's eye in the first shot.
