Also a nice capture. What equipment do you use? If you don´t mind also clothes - it can be cold waiting for a photo moment - or perhaps you keep walking all the time?

Those talons--can't take my eyes off them. That's a severe looking owl and I wonder how close he allowed you to approach?

These where taken at the same place as the lake photos and are tame so you can actaully hold them for a small fee..!!! I've got some more which i need to PP then i'll post them later on...!!!!

Thanks....

Clothes wise...Just Jeans, Trainers and a thin coat/Jacket which is basically a Golfing Jacket...I don't really feel the cold more like aches in my wrists from a Moto-X accident years ago when i broke both my wrists...Plus carrying a Tamrac Expedition 8 full of equipment helps keep warm with the weight of all the gear!!!

Well perhaps then I should invest in more lenses, rather in better outdoor clothes. But lenses are a lot more expensive £-)

Just get yourself a good layered jacket...Something with climate control fabric...I personally would'nt get a thick padded jacket as a few layers are better than one..!!

You pay a small fee and I'd bet the owl gets to hold you. Please go back and give that a try and with your free hand (no sudden moves) take the picture.
