Well done, Stephanie.
I was browsing the bird category in the gallery for specs about my latest post (hornbill) and discovered your in flight.

and what a great first shot it is. You did ecellent on this action photo. Very well timed, capturing the wings in a beautiful out stretched position. The sharpness and colors are very nice.

Congratulations Steph, this is a nice première! This POV and composition are very nice. Details could have been accentuated I think but not really by using this aperture. I like the way you capture it flying almost to you :) This must have been an interesting experience and something special to see. I have never seen flying owls so far in “real”. Well done! TFS,

Bonne prise de vue, le focus est très bien, l'angle sous lequel l'oiseau regarde est superbe.

Hi Steph, for a first inflight it's very good. The composition is ok. It's a shame the BG is quite busy but there's not much you can do about that. Nice work.
The less said about the jokes the better...
..owl be seeing you

Well done Steph. Good first flight... and you've got him all in the pic too. I bet you were thrilled.
Not too sure about your jokes, but I guess owl stop smiling soon!

Beautiful, nice timing, POV and DOF
Just going through your shots,
this is great. I see owls so often hovering after mice and the such, but by the time I've faffed around with getting my camera out, no owl!
You've captured this one well. Beautiful face and good movement.
Did the trainer do many fly pasts or was this a one time hit?
Whatever, it's still great. Very jealous
