Eastern Screech Owl camoflauge

By gregster09
Nature's camouflage. It was hard just to figure out where he was without looking through the viewfinder! I had spotted him when he flew earlier.

This is one of the best owl shots I've seen around this site!  Its expression, markings, its camouflage to the tree.  An over all wonderful photo! :clap:!!

he looks groggy like he just woke up! I love the juxtaposition of the owl against the tree. Owls are so interesting to look at, so much personality with those big eyes! Thanks for sharing

Wow, that's a great shot! He looks just like a part of that tree. And he looks quite sleepy as well. x3

Oh what a great expression! I can imagine how hard it was to pick him out... even better camouflage than the baby one.

That's so wonderful! Owls are rare to actually see around here, and especially to photo!
He seems to be giving you the stink eye...:paranoid:

840mm focal length.. :wow:

Thats a EF 300mm (F2.8) with a 1,4 and 2,0 extender, right?

Anyway, fabulous shot once again. Very promising for Deviantart :)

Actually a 600 f4 IS with a 1.4x :)

The quality wouldnt have been as good as this with 2 extenders.
