Night time owl

Yes, finally the juvenile Little Owl (Athene noctua/Steenuil) was perching on the rusty harrow! I had this late-dusk setting in my mind for quite some time and put a lot of effort into creating it. Yesterday on a full moon muggy summer evening somewhere in Noord-Brabant everything felt into place. The scene is lit by a LED torch; the owlet was not bothered by it at all!

* Canon EOS 5D Mark II, 500mm/f4 IS; ISO-1600, f4.0, 1/15s; tripod; LED torch.
