Here are some short eared owls images taken at the fleet on the 12/05/2012. A Canon EOS 7D + Sigma 50-500mm DG OS HSM Lens was used. I just love these birds, so graceful in flight, and great to watch and photograph. Enjoy.

Good shots James. Shorties are high on my wishlist for photographing but in spite of reading lots of reports of them within easy distance they never show for me. The only one I have seen was when I was on a walking trip in Edale and I only had a short lens with me :- (

Like everyone else I have theories and opinions on lots of things I know b*gger all about.
