    where do you find all these owls !.. they are all so sweet and perfect shots .. I see you use 5.6 a lot that seems to be a good Aperature to use .. I notice mine come out good with that one ( not as good as yours tho )
  • A large aperture (small F stop) decreases your Depth of Field which allows for the blurring of backgrounds. This isolates your subject from back ground distraction

    I have to admit that I’m green with envy!

  • Do they not have something similar in Australia?

    Another wonderful shot, Michael. Which area of Ottawa, if you don’t mind me asking?

  • Thanks Mike

    What a neat capture. It’s almost like the little owl is smiling. Instant FAV Barb

  • That could be, it appeared to like to have it’s photo taken
