photoblog image Owl week

Owl week


The fifth of a bunch of pictures of owls for this week. There are just two different birds and each picture was taken in and around Lymington during 9th December, which was a dull, damp day.

This is a Snowy Owl from the Owl Sanctuary in Ringwood.

Owls are often brought into Lymington at the weekend, to get them used to people and also I expect for publicity.

~ Gallaxy ~ has some lovely pictures of other birds from the Sanctuary, taken while she was there.

Now this one looks altogether different from the others, Ellie. And yes, I think he has something to say!
Great photo I like the owl from the 19th a little more
Fine detail. In fact a fine portrait photograph all around.

"Now don't you come any closer unless you want to feel this beak" Terrific shot Ellie.
Wow! Ellie this is stunning! I had forgotten about the snowy owls - aren`t they just so magnificent. Love the way you have captured that beautiful amber coloured eye. (:o)

The size of the mouth is surprising...tend to think the beak is small because not much of it is visible.
Is this asking for food, yawning, or saying something derogatory about photographers?
Another excellent image, Ellie.
