Barred Owl In Flight

This is a series of a Barred Owl taking flight, dropping from a large branch.  The bird had flown there after being released by her handler at The Center For Birds Of Prey. Each image documents the wing motions of an owl in flight.

Not a single sound is made by the wings.

I was standing between the owl and her handler when she decided to come down from the tree.

These were photographed at 500mm, 1/1000 second, 10 shots per second.

    1. Barred Owls seem to be the type we always have the most interaction with. One of my favorites too. Thanks.
