Short-eared Owl in Evening Light

Short-eared Owl in evening lightShort-eared Owl in evening light – Nikon D200, f6.3, 1/125, ISO 400, +0.7 EV, Nikkor 200-400mm VR with 1.4x TC at 400mm, natural light, not baited

There is a golden tone with evening light that makes a subject glow. This male Short-eared Owl (Asio flammeus) was photographed last year in Glacier County, Montana not too long before the sun set. It was a very cooperative subject.

About Mia McPherson

I am a nature lover, wildlife watcher and a bird photographer. I first become serious about bird photography when I moved to Florida in 2004 and it wasn’t long before I was hooked (addicted is more like it). My move to the Salt Lake area of Utah was a great opportunity to continue observing their behavior and to pursue my passion for photographing birds.


  1. Love those eyes…and the look on the egret’s countenance in the preceding photo

  2. What a stunning photo, and a gorgeous subject. I am always in awe of the quality of your work, Mia. Well done.
