Eyes on the Prize

Hi all…I am braving another bird of prey photograph today so I hope you all like it. The photograph I am sharing with you today is of a magnificent Spotted Eagle Owl. It was busy catching bugs in the after a big rainstorm one evening. There were lots of bugs scuttling around after the rain so this owl was having a great time-like a kid in a candy store. The best thing about this photograph, and this species actually, are the eyes. That bright yellow-orange colour is so striking. Makes for great pictures. I actually just notices this now and I don’t know if you guys will be able to see it but there is a little pink spot above the owl’s right leg. That is actually a little pink flower that it has got stuck in its feathers. I just thought it was cute and wanted to draw your attention to it. This photograph was taken with my Nikon D3s and Nikon 600mm f4.

Take a look and let me know what you think… 

A last note from me sending a HUGE congratulations to our friend Dr. Etienne Bruwer for the arrival of the newest addition to their family…a little boy! So happy for you guys and bring him to see me as soon as possible. The Kalahari is waiting to introduce itself to him.

Cheers til tomorrow.
