This was close to shooting in the dark. A thick swamp with an overhead canopy.
Below, a Barred Owl had dropped down on a Bull Frog in the water. While holding it’s prey the Owl looked around constantly for danger.
Best viewed large.
Most everything shot here has light and noise problems. ISO is too high and images are deleted.
I recently purchased Topaz Software AI Denoise. The update last week made this photograph possible. It appears if the photograph was taken with the proper light and focus Topaz can work.
