Wide Angle Little Owlet 2

Wide Angle Little Owlet. You don’t always need a long lens for wildlife photography! This curious little owlet staring down the lens was taken at just 20mm on full frame. To achieve this image I placed my second camera at ground level and manually prefocused the lens. I then retreated back the car and waited to trigger the set up remotely. It didn’t take long before an owlet came to investigate, but promptly hopped up onto the camera and began nibbling the cable. Not exactly what I had planned! Next it was the beanbags turn to get a thorough investigation, before finally hopping in front of the lens and allowing me to capture some images.

Using my car as a mobile hide I am able to get extremely close to this family of little owls by the side of a quiet country lane. Little owls are creatures of habit and typically favour the same perches and routines, so I regularly see them on the same perches.

About Little Owls:

Little Owls were first introduced to the UK in the early 19th century. Of all the owls found in the UK the little owl is the most crepuscular and can often be seen perched in broad daylight. When alarmed they will rapidly bob their heads up and down and rapidly take flight with their long rounded wings.

You can find more information on little owls here.
