Great Horned Owl

Maker's notes: 

Image was shot at Fort Snelling State Park in Minneapolis. Used my Tamron 175-600 mm set on about 580mm. Carmera (Canon 7D Mark II) was set on Shutter Prioirty (Tv) at 1/1000 sec to capture images if bird took flight and to prevent shake with the 600mm lens. ISO set to Auto resulted in ISO 1250. Camera chose an aperture of f/6.3.
