Mark Boyer: This was taken in late afternoon sun, hence the yellow cast on him. The sun went down about 1/2 hour after this shot. Full frame and thanks! Alexander Kharlamov: I was about 13' from him. We found him in the field with I think an injured wing. We went to the car and came back deciding maybe we should take him to a rescue center, but couldn't find him again. :(

Nice owl. I wonder if the overall yellowish tinge to the shot is natural. Isn't he a little whiter? Nonetheless the detail and crop are great. I love that you got him with an open beak.

Gorgeous owl! Jody, you have an amazing gallery. I've been browsing through your pictures tonight and believe it or not, you've taught me some things - just because you chose to share your technical details. I had totally forgotten I could change the ISO on my digital camera. I've been trying for 2 days to get a decent picture of my cat (with an ISO of 100). It was frustrating. Now, thanks to you, I've discovered my camera goes as high as ISO 1600! I just took some pictures indoors at night and didn't even need to use my flash! Photography will never be the same again. Thank you for sharing. You've truly inspired me. - Tonia

Short Eared Owl I think these type of Owls are one of if not the best looking in the Owl family.
