Snowy Owl

We went down to the new forest again today for Valentines day and went to the otter and owl wildlife park.  The owls were magnificent but were in wire enclosures, not behind glass, which made shooting difficult.  This is a snowy owl and was fantastic.  They’re a lot bigger than I thought they’d be, and this one looks happy with himself.  Keeping a wide aperture was important because it was dark and also to blur the fencing out as much as possible.  You can still jsut about see the fence, but it’s not too noticable.

1/200s, f/2.8, ISO800, 150mm
