Thank you for submitting this great photo to the Owl Challenge! I have added it to my group of favorites from which I will choose the winner! Best Wishes!

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken on the island of Bornholm in Denmark. This young owl is accustomed to having people around , so it was not particularly difficult to get close to it. The photo was taken at a distance of about 15 meters.
Time
The picture was taken on July 16, 2014 at 12:33 PM, a few seconds after my picture " Sleepy owl "
Lighting
It was sunny that day , but the owl had placed itself on a pole where there was no direct sunlight. Exif information is 400mm - 1/1250 sec - f/5.6 - ISO 400.
Equipment
The photo was taken handheld on a Canon 7D with a Canon 400mm f5.6L prime.
Inspiration
Owls and other birds of prey have always been a great inspiration for me. They are incredibly beautiful birds and certainly not always easy to get close.
Editing
Post -processing was made in Lightroom. The image is slightly cropped . I have removed some noise, the curse of 7D, and added a little sharpness.
In my camera bag
My bag usually includes two cameras, a Canon 7D and a Canon 5D MK III . For these cameras I use Canon 400mm f / 5.6L Canon 70-200mm f / 2.8 L II and Canon 24-105 F / 4L . In addition, there are often different filters and a mono or tripod .
Feedback
Get up close and then even closer.
