Stretch by mydigitalmind Stretch by mydigitalmind
This Owlet put on a small show simply by stretching its wings in every which way. He would stretch his wings out so much that I had to zoom out just to get him. I missed some great shots by being zoomed in too much!

I was happy that some of the photos came out decently sharp since my shutter speed was already slow at 1600 ISO. Nothing you can do about an Owl wanting to be in poorly lit woods!

Submitting this to the #ArtisticAnimals's Active Animals contest!
