Black and White Owl: Gamboa, Panama, July 2022 — This is a companion shot to the one I shared on International Owl Awareness Day a few days ago. Wikipedia says the Back and White Owl is “not afraid of living near human habitations” and my experience of them certainly bears that out…the only one’s I have ever seen were in a city park in Honduras, and this one in a semi-abandoned housing development on the old base at Gamboa, Panama. In this shot the bird seems to be “looking down it’s nose” (or beak as it may be) at me. 🙂 Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications with multi-frame noise reduction. Processed in Pixelmator Photo and Apple Photos. Nominal exposure: ISO 1600 @ f4 @ 1/500th. Plus .7EV exposure compensation.
