CommentMost times we aim to capture the bird with its eyes clearly focussed on the camera, and this is often automatic anyway, given the bird’s natural watchfulness. For many birds this results in a profile shot, while for raptors including owls it would often be a full-face shot. I have chosen this ‘head and bill’ photo because it departs from this norm, and softens the apparent attitude of the Boobook, allowing the viewer to become less confronting and more the observer.
