Barred Owls

Barred Owls

It is a cool, pleasant evening in northern Virginia. So, I had the sliding glass door open to the back deck off my office. While working on my computer about 45 minutes ago, I heard a pair of Barred Owls calling in the trees behind my house. It was dark; therefore, I quickly mounted a speedlight (flash) with a Better Beamer (flash extender) on my camera and fired off a few shots. Above and below are a couple of the images that I captured.

Barred-OwlSeeing one of my favorite bird species without having to search for them made my evening very special.

The images were taken on a Nikon D810 with an 80-400mm lens and SB-910 Speedlighjt.

    Fantastic sighting! I heard a barred owl in the distance recently, but have never gotten a picture. The better beamer works very well. Wonderful!
