Glad you enjoyed them. Actually, it is easy for me to photograph these guys - each one was sitting on my (gloved) hand when I took his or her picture. The only hard part was holding my arm out far enough for a good shot!

Sounds like you could use a really wide angle lens for your bird pictures! Several years ago Daniel used a fisheye lens to photograph a bird eating out of his hand. Only that one was a wild bird that just dropped by to have lunch - a cool picture.

You are very lucky to have such friends as these!

Hello mole!

Now, if you're hand holding both the owl & camera, then it really is a "hand-held" picture. <grin>

That makes those images even more impressive!

Take care, yours truly,
Glen

Those are great shots taken with one hand, the expressions on each one are amazing.

Thanks for all the kind comments. My feathered friends thank you too! If you are ever in my "neck of the woods" and want to photograph these guys "up close and personal," just let me know.

Great oul portraits.
Really like the second with the pure black eyes.
