I came to Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge in Delaware this afternoon for chasing after snow geese but here is my first ever shot of an owl in the wild in my life – how exciting!! When I watch this owl perching on the tree in the field it looked like as if it could turn its head 360 degrees so quickly before I could press the shutter – but it’s not true only 270 degrees compares to human of up to about 160 degrees. A Pakistani boy was able to turn 180 and was dubbed as “owl head”. But human eyes do have advantage over owl’s because we can turn our eyeball in the socket without turning the head – just watch how baseball’s pitcher “keep an eye on the runner on the first base”. Owl can’t turn the eyeball so it has to turn the head.
That is exciting! Congratulations!
Thank you, it was exciting to see and photograph the owl in the wild. I did a little reading and updated my post.
You’re welcome, and I will check out the updated post!.
You have got a wonderful photo of that Owl against the clear sky. Brilliant.
