Sat. was "Raptor Day" at Okeeheelee Park in West Palm Beach. They keep several birds that cannot be returned to the wild and one day a year they charge admission to photogs for good photo ops - so it is win/win for all involved. This was early mourning starting at 8:45 - 10:00.

They had several raptors, but the Owls were highest on my list - as I have NO OWL images ! I would love to say I got these shots in the wild - they are such amazing birds !

GEAR: Sony A77II and Sigma 100-300 f4 from bodypod or sitting on ground , most of these at 300mm, F6.3, 1/400-500 (just in case there was subject action/movement ).

The Barred Owl appears wet because every so often the handlers would "mist" them to keep them cool - ( Florida you know ! )

Incredible shots Larry. Ive always felt the GHO's feather pattern to be almost hypnotic. Your 2nd shot confirms it for me. Gary
