Regular Random – Eggy the Barn Owl

I have an extra-special treat this week, I got to spend an awesome afternoon with some stunning Australian Rescue Birds or Prey and they dedicated handlers. I especially love my five minutes of alone time with Eggy the Barn Owl and Thalia.


To be able to stand mere inches away and shoot to my heart’s content is a privilege and an honor.

You may remember Eggy from earlier in the year, or perhaps even last years visit?

His feathers are so soft and he is so warm, allowing for silent flight, he stands so silent and so still, making him perfect for photography. I doubt I would ever have the chance to get this close in the wild.

I hope you have enjoyed the photos today, certainly a bit different from cupcakes or flowers! Do you want to get involved in Regular Random too? Visit Desley’s page…

A quick recap of the rules:

  • choose a subject or a scene
  • spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
  • try to see it from many angles, look through something at it, change the light that’s hitting it
  • have fun!
  • tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to this post

That’s all there is to it, just five minutes and any topic you choose.
