Wildlife photography is sort by millions and in todays digital world, is there a true understanding of what it takes to be a true wildlife photographer.
The gear is just a small part of what it takes to get the image you are so proud of.
As I explained before the Barn Owl is my favourite bird and with an unique opportunity to use land from a lovely lady, I cannot turn down a great sunny day with blue skies. Sounds daft but to have the good light for 6 hours is a rare opportunity here in the UK.
With the ground frozen and it only 1 degree i was in position for 9am. After 3 hours I had to move for body circulation reasons.
With 3 locations to choose from I moved and sat for another 2 hours with no sign of the Barn Owl. The Buzzard flew over, a Kestrel and a Sparrowhawk made an appearance.
After 5 and a half hours I decided to call it a day when I looked up and Barny was there in front of me. She left the barn and flew away into the distance. It was then when I went back to my first location. Sitting ready she came back and put on a display for me
The images of her looking down into the grass in a majestic way gets my heart racing.
The Sony A7r4 Locked on to all 50 images of her without one being out of focus, together with the Sony 200-600.
