A hike in the woods with my 9 year old daughter!
And a great friend, we has a wonderful experience with this very tiny owl, only about 5 inches long! all bunbled up in its feathers, keeping warm in the very chilly climate here in southern Ontario, this bird posed for us for about 20 minutes!! We left it alone to sleep, then moved on to find other opportunities.
My Maria really enjoyed the visit! there is something about owls that she finds amazing! Maybe its that look!! This species of owl is more then adorable, so that helps too!
Setting up with a tripod, shooting a low shutter speed, low iso, and high f-stop worked well with these conditions. Very little light, and since we were so close (about 10 feet), depth of field was important.
Best wishes for a good day, thanks for your kind support, and nice comments, and shares!
