A Couple Short Eared Owls

I continue to edit older images shot a year ago, but I think these two frames of SE owls are worth a look, maybe.

    Both good. Like the first a tad better. Placing more room in front of him/her to fly into was a good edit choice.

    I like the first one a bit more because of the softer tones in the rest of the scene. They're both great though. Boy, you can really tell that these guys have great natural camo. What beauties.

    These are wonderful.
    I think I prefer the first image as well although the second one is very powerful - I feel like the owl is looking right at me.

    Splendidly tracked. The eye contact on #2 gets my vote. Great shots, Jim!

    I agree!

    I don't know where I'm going, but I'm going anyway.

    Luck happens when preparation meets opportunity!
