A goofy look from a Short-eared OwlA goofy look from a Short-eared Owl – Nikon D200, f6.3, 1/320, ISO 400, +0.7 EV, Nikkor 200-400mm VR with 1.4x TC at 400mm, natural light, not baited or called in

Most of the time the birds and animals I photograph look majestic, elegant or their¬†poses convey action but some times they look just plain goofy. It seems that owls in particular can get into funny poses or have goofy expressions like this male Short-eared Owl I photographed in Glacier County, Montana during a lovely golden sunset. The Short-eared Owl was peering at something in the¬†barley field across the road, what ever it was I couldn’t see it.

Enjoy your Saturday!
