A collared scops owl, shot in Pench earlier this month. We had seen him late in the evening,and I took it as an oppurtunity to try my handholding skills,
as the bird was as lazy as the shutter speed and wouldn't move an inch. The trial didn't end up in a disaster at least :P
f5.6, ISO 1600, 1/13sec, EV +1, 400mm, cropped, evaluative metering.
canon 60D, canon 100-400 L IS USM
P.S:- A specially processed image. Cloned a twig on the left corner of the image, and used spot healing brush to cover up a few leaves at the bottom of the frame. However, the subject and the perch haven't been touched. Looking forward to hearing on how I handled the low shutter speed and for suggestions on improving in regard to the same.
