Now that story has a familiar ring to it, (rushing around) and what a shot, just superb I love the framing with the two birds, excellent d.o.f, and the colours too they almost blend in with the tree, really nice work mate, tfs, Cheers Rick :)
Well seen! I like the vertical composition, not only to capture the two birds within the frame, but just looks better when looking up.

Hi John, What a cute photo of this owl, It is clearer than many others on this site. The presence of two species is a real plus. The owls plumage is fully fluffed in the cold i think. TFS. Murray.
PS Bird photos is the main reason for my interest so i like to see these. Take a look at Alper ID " twin" on treklens too.

Very nicely captured, both birds in a single frame.
It seems the jay try to tease the sleepy owl ......
fantastic photo! great composition. I hope the owl has moved into the neighbourhood so you can get more pics like this for me to check out. well done and TFS
I thought JayJays hate or frighten from owls. it is very intresting shot. well composed and nice use of focus. perfect shot.

You have cool shot and nice story here :)
you manage to get two for the price of one in this nice picture.
Good sharpness, nice composition and colours.
You did a lot of PP-work here maybe a bit overdoing?
Very nice to be able to take shot of a Barred Owl and Blue Jay at once! Though the quality of this shot suffers a little from the heavy cropping, both birds are seen sharply and with good detail. The composition with the small branches and blue Sky BG is great!
Thanks for sharing this one. You must be back in OZ now.

Is this what they call "..two birds on one stone"..?
Very nice catch, the owl has probably been delayed on the way home, hehehe...
Well done and fine details!
this is a superb shot and you got 2 of the price of 1,
excellent details on all yoiur image, excellent POV
from down to up and vertical framing to get the 2 birds on the image,
your retouch is succesful on the workshop, TFS

A nice image of the owl and of the blue jay which are not annoyed by each other. The point of view is showing with precision the details and colors of the feathers of the barred owl. Have a nice day.

Two birds both in excellent sharpness and details. A double bonus against the clear blue sky.

This is an amazing shot, and not just that fact that you have captured two birds at once. The owl is really stunning and I love the colour of the bark on the tree. There is so much detail and texture running throughout the picture. Great shot.

This is super!Last Winter I witnessed some ravens mobbing an owl,and could not manage one shot.
To get the blue jay is a real bonus.As Marie says two for the price of one.
This owl is a beauty ,with lovely plumage that shows well.
The shot has very good lighting.Your POV was very good.

2 in 1...hoe cool is that!!!
I really like the pose in which you've managed to capture both of them here!
Owls in my opinion are superb subjects for photos, but here we also have a scale for its size - in that lovely blue jay behind :)
I remember seeing pretty much the same scenario in my garden once, too - with an owl and a dove...but after i came back with my camera...need i mention :)
Anyway, you did gret to capture this, compose it like this and shar it.

The owl has a good pose, looking down.
A slight softness but a picture I will be happy to make.
Have a good WE

Wow! This one is somewhat of a rare shot, you dont really see many owl shots with other species of birds in the picture. Very nice exposure with fantastic details. TFS :)
