CommentHaving never been lucky enough to see an Eastern Grass Owl in the wild, I was happy to capture an image at the Australian Reptile Park. Light was low so I needed a high ISO and low shutter speed, but was able to brace against a railing to get a satisfactory result.
(Moderator note: While this image is somewhat obscured by foreground material, and not ideal, there is only one other image of this Owl in the database.)
EquipmentCamera: Nikon D500. Lens: Nikkor 70-300mm zoom @ 250mm. Aperture: f/8. ISO: 4000. Exposure: 1/60s.
LocationAustralian Reptile Park, Somersby, New South Wales
