Absolutely great shots, I took a few of owls myself recently, happy with them but I see I have a way to go. Some of the focusing on moving subjects is simply sublime.

As for the title, excellent title, if anyone's offended by it they probably deserve to be. Let's not let this tyrannical move to "political correctness" rob us of any more of the language's rich variety!

I hope the subject line wasn't too subtle ;). I don't see a thread devoted to owls, so I'll get one started. I think they are really cool and I've been very fortunate to find a few of these guys but have never actually gone looking for them, and yes, most of mine are barred owls:

Barred Owl - hooting his head off for his mate from his fishing perch:


Great Horned Owl - spotted the silhouette just before sunrise:


Barred Owl - in my backyard - he comes by almost every evening but this is the first time he was close enough to actually see:


My first wild (barred) owl in my front yard - not a great shot, but I was really excited to finally get a shot of one in the wild!:


Eastern Screech Owl (Captive) at the local zoo:

Ha, Ha, Ha---Dear my Teacher Mr. ajfotofilmagem.
Yes, " This rare species is the "busty hooters" ", yes, You are the expert of the species of the hooters any way, But I know that Mr. Mackguyver is a Expert of the Night lifes of these beautiful hooters too.
But this specie, We do not need the long , long lens such as 600 mm or 800 mm to take their photos, I love to use 12 mm. lens , and to get super close to their noses, and see their beautiful eyes too.
Well, We just want to have " FUN thinking in Sunday night.
Have a great night, Sir.

Re: owl

I previously posted these in the bird portrait thread.

Northern Spotted Owl, a threatened/endangered species.

Orangutan - those are nice photos of the endangered species that sadly became a political hot button and LSV, it's good the owl landed where he/she did!

Surapon, this thread is meant for the natural beauties, but I can appreciate your post 8)

Surapon, I'm quite familiar with the restaurants (too familiar, perhaps, at least for my wife), and I know you're having fun :) Unlike their outdoor counterparts, they are much easier to find, but yes, some of them aren't all natural ;), but they are beautiful in their own way, at least for men ;D

Thanks. I think these photos are more interesting for the subject matter than for the quality of the image -- they have some technical problems due to the lighting (and my skill level).

This was right outside a designated Wilderness area. As I understand, the biggest threats to this species are habitat loss and competition from barred owls, a close relative.

I don't recognize the term "LSV"....

Both photos are great!
Very cute for the first one.
