Another picture of the gorgeous Athena. This time with my new camera. I love the clarity I got!

Athena is an educational Great Horned Owl, living at Sarvey Wildlife Care Center, in Arlington, WA.

Hello, Nuna!
What a nice capture!
Owls are the birds which have such a cattish eyes! You have got this cat-look from your photo.)

Great horned owls act pretty cat-like in general. Everything is on their terms.

closest shot of an owl I've ever seen! I wish people would do more of these!

Nuna Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I have the opportunity to get pretty close to them at work, so it's actually easier for me to get shots like this, then other types.

Do you work around animals?

ragingviolence Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2012
I volunteer at a zoo every once in a while, but it's a reptile zoo so no owls :(
(they do have some finches and a few different types of parrots though)

I think reptiles are awesome! I would enjoy working with them, without a doubt.

OH YAAAAY! Finally another person usually i get the response that's like AHHHH *look of horror* so people who actually like reptiles are a nice change of pace :3

Nice photo! She is so cute on this shot. You managed not only sow all details, but to express her mood and smartness.

I'm so happy for you! You need to start submitting these work to the photography groups on dA. : D

Nuna Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I don't really consider myself a photographer. I just enjoy taking pictures, and I like the look of some of them. Submitting them to groups makes me nervous because I'm afraid they'll be rejected because I'm too inexperienced.

But everyone has to start somewhere. : D And I think some of your pieces are better than the ones in the photo groups I watch. Your pictures have souls, meanings, and purpose which a lot of photos lack. They're just "pretty".

I really appreciate hearing that. I love the birds I work with, and I'm glad it comes through in the pictures I take.
