a wonderful photograph of barred owl, it is unique species. Now a days these species are becomming rare in many parts of the world. In my location in India Owls are almost extinct. I have forgotten its sound for past few years because of rapid felling of trees and due to urbanization. So sad... for me. thanks for sharing this wonderful species.
great portrait of this beautiful bird
iso 1600 obviously was best choice to have this great result with shutter speed of 1/500 sec. and still almost no noise
