More of the Great Gray Owl

02.23.09 | 4 Comments

Hey everybody,

Here’s another one of the Great Gray Owl I photographed in Ottawa. Once it landed on it’s prey, it would sit there for a few minutes, and would allow us to get pretty close. Before re-positioning myself to shoot the bird taking off back to it’s perch, I would try to capture a few static shots. For this particular shot, I laid down on my stomach for a super-low angle in order to show the falling snow against the darker background.

Anyway… Here’s my quick story. My super-warm leather and fur mad bomber hat was getting in the way a bit while trying to get flight shots of the owl. I casually tossed it a few feet behind me, and the owl instantly swooped down, snatched it, and flew off to the woods. He didn’t come out for the next fifteen or twenty minutes. Who knows what he did with my hat. Anyway, this image should give you an idea for what I saw as I bid farewell to my hat.
