Recent shot of this wonderful owl. Here you can see how owl is constantly looking around for danger in the air. It was chased by another SE Owl and Northern Harrier.
SE Owls face constant threat from Bald Eagle, Northern Goshawk,
Gyrfalcon, Red-tailed Hawk and Snowy Owl.
Northern Harriers love to steal the food from SE Owls since owls are way more efficient hunters.

D2Hs, AF 300mm f/2.8
1/3200, ISO-800, f/2.8, handheld.

Please click on the image for uncompressed view, thank you.

Excellent image showing the owl looking upward for its own safety, Ludo. A lot to enjoy in large view – good detail and a lovely blue sky background. Very nice.

Beautiful flight pose, Ludo - and no wonder this little beauty is constantly looking around for danger! Excellent shot.
