Angel Delight

How can you not admire this Owl in flight hunting in Total Slence, reason being is the wings.

Some Owls have a comb like leading edge, this enables the to fly silent. Other birds don’t have this feather formation and thats why they make a whooshing noise.

Yesterday I witnessed the Barn Owl beating its wings to pin point its pray. But I was amazed how still and how many different wing formations she did. Looking through my images the Sony A7r4 200-600 focused on the Owl and never lost focus.

They talk about the Sony A911 being the best in the business for tracking. But when your tracking is like this what more do you want. And a facility to crop from 61mp.

Here are some more images of many I got of her on 2 occasions when she came in to hunt.

There not all the same.

I am 63 years old and and since a boy have had an interest in wildlife and in particular birds. I help my Dad with the rearing of young finches and other birds. I had many small birds as pets and as i got older and joined the Military i purchsed my first Camera, and fold out Kodak. Over a 22 year period i enjoyed many countries outside the uk and observed many species of birds. When i left the military in 2000, i bought my first digital camera a Canon 450D with a Tamron 70-300 and started my journey on capturing images of birds and animals. I quickly learned that there was a lot more to getting a good image of a bird, so i started to research the best settings for my camera in order to capture a better image. Over a 12 month period i realised that needed to invest in a better camera and lens and after research bought a Canon 50D and a 100-400 Lens. It was 2013 when i really got to grips with the setup and came across a lovely Short Eared Owl. From that meeting i started to concentrate on Owls as they fasinated me. From Canon to Olympus i recently jumped ship again to Sony. The variety of birds i have captured over a 10 year period is vast and at present i have a wildlife hide in lancashire where most of my images are captured.
