    Default Indian Scops-owl ??

    Can some one confirm is this Indian Scope Owl ? I could manage only this click before the family ducked inside the tree hole.

    Nice composition. It seems there was some shake. Was it taken from a moving vehicle? Maybe using a higher shutter speed would have helped to get more details. Thanks for sharing.

    P.S - It would be nice if you can mention the EXIF details in the post and not on the image. Thanks.

    Where was it clicked. When the engine of the vehicle is on, there is a lot of vibration. So if you rest your camera or lens on the vehicle and the engine is running, then you are more likely to get a soft image.

    Cheers,
