Northern Hawk Owls Part 2

Ottawa was host to at least one hawk owl last winter. They are more common at those latitudes, but still don’t occur that often; in fact I haven’t seen one this year, although there have been a few scattered reports. The light was better than on my previous trips to the local hawk owl the previous year.

    Incredible series. You stopped the action perfectly, and the perched shots have fantastic detail and a nice clean background. Lovely work. Glad I came across this
