Thank you very much AmandaJayne

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo of a Northern hawk-owl was taken in a small wooded area outside Copenhagen, Denmark. This species does not live in Denmark. They normally live much further north in the sub-arctic regions of Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia. Some winters come some individuals to Denmark. They sit mostly down on Zealand and in the forests around Copenhagen, where they hunt mice and other small rodents. These owls come from areas where there are not many people.They thus have no natural fear of humans, but is completely indifferent to people. In this case it tried on catching a mouse 5 meters from me.
Time
The photo was taken Dec. 2, 2016 around noon.
Lighting
It was a sunny winter day as the lighting conditions were good.
Equipment
For this photo I used a Canon 5D Mk. III mounted with a Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Sports 014 and a tripod.
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 to.
Editing
Post-processing was made in Lightroom. The image is slightly cropped . I have added a little sharpness and contrast.
In my camera bag
My bag usually includes a Canon 5D MK III . For this camera I use Sigma150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Sports 014, Canon 70-200mm f / 4 L IS USM, Canon 16-35mm f/4L IS USM and Canon 85mm 1.8 USM. In addition, there are often different filters and a mono or tripod .
Feedback
Get up close and then even closer.
