Owl eyes closeup


Great Grey Owl eyes

This owl shot was taken in January just outside of Ottawa, Canada 2017.  I spent 2 days finding the beautiful bird and as habit dictates he stayed in the same field for the next 3 days.

Each time the great grey owl swoops down and catches his prey (field mice) he pauses and looks around before eating.  This is when I was able to capture this fantastic image.  The photograph was taken with a Nikon D5, 500mm lens and1.4x multiplier.  The lens is huge 🙂

Gear: Phase Nikon D5, Nikkor 500mm lens.
Settings: Focal length 300mm; exposure 1/4,000 sec; f4; ISO 2,200.
GPS: 45°19’18.744″ N 74°7’21.546″ W
