Taken today. I did not think it was that hard to get these guys in flight.

Amazing! I love that second pic. I didn't realize how powerful their legs are. They look like you photoshopped rabbit legs onto him. I've seen a great horned owls here and have photographed them - but nothing like that. Thanks for sharing.

I'm sooooooooooooo envious!!! On the few times I've seen Barred Owls in flight it's been at dusk, not in full-on daylight/sunshine!! If/when I finally get to Florida I'll be asking for tips on where to find these sunshine-loving owls!! :smile:

Beautiful! Shots like these may not be hard for you - but for someone who's never even seen an owl in the wild - these shots are the things of dreams!

Well done!

These shots where hard to get, trying to focus on this bird and get the right composition, I got a work out.:biggrin:

I'am lucky to live in a place that we have them.

Thanks for looking

Really cool flight shots. Oh how I wish we would see them more around here. I heard a barn owl scream just about a half hour ago, but I haven't seen one in more than a year.
Again, those are just wonderful flight shots, that second one is just too cool.:smile:
