Great Horned Owl... with accessories
7 months ago

I posted one of the shots of this brutal hunter with half of a squirrel in the talons sometime ago. However, I just discovered forgotten memory card with a few better shots.

K-5  and Sigma 500/4.5 in very early morning. The first one was shot handheld; the 2nd - from a monopod (I think ;-))

Full and Sleepy

Don't Even Think About It!

My Extreme III 32GB card failed to record first time. I replaced it with another one and forgot about a few very first shots.

Really nice captures of the GHO, like the one with eyes open the best.

Thank you, LPA. Actually some of your owl's shots of the last years have inspired me to look for theses magnificent creatures.

Nice shots.  The squirrel certainly came out a poor "2nd" in that battle.  Had a red tailed hawk go after one of our cats a number of years back.  She just made her escape under our deck in the nick of time.
