Now if I don't get another shot on this trip I'll be OK because I got my first ever Owl:thumbup: Scooting down some of the back "range roads" to get closer to old abandoned houses has, if nothing else, proven that they are abandoned by humans yes but these beautiful creatures have moved in.

Awesome shot Michael. You couldn't have asked for a better setting for a capture such as this. The old weathered wood, the perch, and that "look" Def. a framer.

I noticed that perch, too. It is a wonderful shot. Keep'em coming, JK.

And its a beauty. Love that stare. I feel like I am in trouble :)

I am another fan of this one, the textures & tone of the building work well with the owl

Thanks everyone. I've always wanted to get an owl shot but never saw one so this for me was a total thrill. Also it gave me some idea of just how capable the Sigma 150-500mm lens could be especially on a cropped sensor where it's actually 750mm. He/she has menacing eyes for sure:) It was raining this day so I shot it from inside the car.

Great shot Michael. I like the background and texture of the old weathered wood.
I can just hear him say "Whoooooo is that"

I appreciate the rustic-ness of this shot. I also like the way the colour in the eyes pops in contrast with the muted colours of the weathered structure.
Thanks for sharing.

What a hoot. Love the way the owl almost blends into the weathered wood. Well done, Michael
