This was a challenge because of a lack of light and was the highest ISO I have ever tried. This female barn owl has been in the same area for at least 4 years and I have photographed it many times. I never get tired of watching its ghostly body flying in near total darkness. I am addicted!

What a beauty. Just good as it gets Bob! You did very well in low light ISO-25,000. I love the back looking pose.

Bob, what a wonderful image, and considering you shot it ISO 25,600 makes it amazing. I like everything about your image! Superb. Congrats.
