Wonderful Portraits Of Different Owl Species By Brad Wilson

In this stunning series by Brad Wilson, the photographer captures up-close portraits of different owl species. Each bird is set against a stark black background, and the brilliant vantage point allows us to marvel at their unique qualities. Tiny feathers, short beaks, and glassy eyes stare straight into the camera with an intense gaze.

It’s not easy to get owls to mug for the camera. Even in captivity the birds remain aloof, unruffled by the flash and unmoved by attempts to bribe them. Photographer Brad Wilson learned that lesson firsthand after trying to win over owls from the World Bird Sanctuary in St. Louis and The Wildlife Center near Espanola, New Mexico. He spent hours with each bird, trying to capture its direct gaze. “It’s hard to get animals to look at you like humans do,” he says. “That shot became my holy grail.”

    1. All my posts are great🏆! Ash.
      I’m naughty huh?

      It’s a play on words? a joke
      That’s it!
      I understood :
      « I do not know how to make the🦉 owl’s cry »:
      hoo hoo, hoo hoo.
      Here, I live in the countryside, so yes I know how to do it! ahhhh!

      And French was an expression be « owl »
      It means being cool.
      Ash you are « nice. »
      I have trouble with humor, in English!
      Can you teach me?
      I love humor, but I practice very bad language.
      You’re talking well, Ash where are you from?

      Yes I remember, I think I read it somewhere
      Canadian!
      This video is superb, what a breath of fresh air, very nice!
      I was there transported as if I felt lifted by the lightness of space and the quiet force that emerges …
      The lines of the landscape clear, round, pure along the coast all along as the thread of a work that we want to continue without ever finishing.
      We train in ballads outside time.

      yes I love.
      How lucky you are, you are in paradise!

      Post it on your Ash blog
