I never used one of those. But be careful. I once had to handle a great horned one (with a broken wing). They are called flying tigers for a reason.

Wonderful shot. At least as amazing you discovered it in the first place. I think I would have missed him even right in front of me.

thanks Berend...

Actually, she's a very public bird - in the entrance to the parking lot of a busy marina.

Well, that's three D7100s this screech owl has sold now. Nikon owes her.

Cool shot!

Personally I'd crop off the grossly overexposed sky at left and top left, which I find distracting and keeping the eye away from the great subject - but that's just me

thanks archrich, antoin...

Plenty of time to think about cropping should I want to make a print antoin - or I could adjust the exposure on the sky.

Lovely capture, but she definitely needs her morning coffee.
