Barred Owl. Canon EOS 7D, 400mm f5.6L USM, tripod.


barred owl, woodland, forest, raptor

Spending time in the outdoors has always been a passion of mine. Most of my subject matter is avian but I will readily spend hours photographing almost anything else in the natural world. Currently I live near a small town, Rockland, just east of Ottawa. I work in Ottawa and so most of my photography is done in eastern Ontario. Thank you for dropping by and enjoy.

    Gorgeous, Bill – these owls are so interesting!

  • Thanks, Mary. They are a joy to watch. Unfortunately some people think they are tame and get a little too close.

    Nice Bill…Maybe they are related?
