CommentThis photo was taken in our garden so is extra special. We rarely see the Southern Boobook Owls so it is always a pleasure when they choose to roost in the garden for the day. I was pleased with this image as it was hand held with a slow shutter speed as it was in low light. I was pleased with the sharpness and the detail in the feathers. The owl was keeping a good eye on me so was looking straight at the camera.
