Barn Owl

This beautiful creature was perched very close while its handler was preparing another tempting food treat during one of the flying demonstrations. With the light colours, I was extremely lucky that there was no bright sunlight because I would have struggled to capture the play of light and shade.

I was using the 70-200 F/2.8 is L mk2 at 185mm with aperture priority and AI Servo because the speed of the birds flying made things very difficult. This shot was at 1/1600s and f/5.6 at ISO400.
