Tasman Morepork (Image ID 40988)
Photographed byMichael Todd on Tue 20th May, 2008 and uploaded on Thu 25th Jun, 2020 .
CommentThis Morepork posed on roadsigns in a forestry area in NW Tasmania. Jumped out of car and managed a couple of pics before it flew into the night. I don't liek the lighting on the vegetation behind the owl but I dont know what I could have done differently. THe photo puts a smile on my face. I love owls to start with but I love seeing them take advantage of us (convenient hunting perch) rather than the other way around.
EquipmentCanon EOS 40D with 100mm f/2.8 macro lens, 1/13 sec., f/5.6, ISO 200. Lit by car headlights and on camera flash.
LocationEdith Creek, NW Tasmania, Tasmania
