Stare Down

I am really not much of a birder, but the one major exception to that is that I LOVE photographing Owls, especially Great Gray Owls. It’s something about their fierce yellow eyes offset against their varying shades of grey in their feathers that makes them beautiful photographic subjects.

 

This Great Gray Owl was shot with my new Canon EOS R Mirrorless camera, as I am still testing it out.  I must say that I am pretty impressed with the results. This image was shot at ISO 3200, and with 500mm lens and 1.4x extender, so the camera really does have a lot to offer.
