Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in Pantanal, Brazil
Time
Picture was taken in the evening before the sunset.
Lighting
I just wanted to take a picture of this cute tiny owl in the evening light. I was lucky that the owl chose for his "evening patrol" this part of the fence with the tree behind him which helped to create the bokeh.
Equipment
Canon 5Dmark III, 400/2.8 - no tripod, no flash
Inspiration
I like owls and it is not easy to get close to them and take pictures, my only desire was just to have a nice picture of this tiny owl.
Editing
I just cropped the photo a bit and increase the clarity on the owl a bit
In my camera bag
always a Canon body, 16-35, 70-200 or 100-400 and or 400/500 long lense. Sometimes I add 100 macro lens, extra cards and bateries.
Feedback
Since this owl is shy it is better to try to find one that lives closer to people and is a bit used to the human presence so it does not fly away as soon as you appear.
