It started as a 366 – now a regular Photoblog- just for the love of taking photos and sharing them.
I can’t believe, in the first one he twinkles his eyes… You are amazing dear Helen, these are great shots. Thank you, love, nia
I think they might sleep like that Nia.. though I’m not sure about that
yes, maybe but it is so lovely. Love, nia
haha…the first one is the best
he does look funny doesn’t he abu..
Love the third one down, great series Helen!
Thanks David appreciate it
These are all so great! Wink, wink, nudge, nudge, say no more! (Why do they all suggest Monty Python to me?)
just because that’s the sort of person you are Scilla… oh and I agree 😀
These are superb photos – clear and full of expression – are you using a telephoto lens or are these pet owls?…
I was using a zoom lens John but they were in a Bird of Prey centre for rescued birds..
lovely. They look as bleary eyed as I do first thing in the morning 🙂
Initially these reminded me of my shots of Barney and Miranda way back in January…Then of course I realised my shots were of actual owls while yours are of comedy characters dressed as owls….Silly me!
Silly you indeed !

You captured some super expressions here!
They have amazing faces and expressions. Fantastic photos Helen.
Thnaks Julia.. it was good fun waiting for the right moments.
Thanks very much Elena |:)
Like the 2nd one best. He looks so sleepy. Must be a young one. Does not have tufts on top of his head (ears?)
I don’t know whether he was young or not martleen. I confess I didn’t write down any details about any of them..
You make this look too simple. These ‘characters’ weren’t just waiting to pose for you. Well done,Helen. These are superb shots and a splendid sequence.
Thank you Louis.. as you know you do just have to be patient..
Love the expressions you have captured, some lovely shots 🙂
Thank you Karen and welcome to my blog 🙂
I’ve never seen owls, or owl shots, like these before. Beautifully done Helen.
Thanks Noel.. I thought I’d look for something a bit different
See, you have to go and outdo my meagre attempts from the last few days! 🙂 Nice shots! 🙂
Sorry !! I hadn’t seen yours Richard will pop over there now 🙂
Haha… Only joking! It’s images like yours that inspire others to do better!
They’re wonderful. That last one looks as if he’s grinning at us ! 🙂
I think he was too Sallyann
Oh these are fabulous, such wonderfully expressive faces!
Thnak you Bee.. I’m glad you like them and welcome to my blog 🙂
Helen! These are Amazing! I love the expressions and the quality of the images are stunning.
Thanks Jamie.. they were, of course, a captive audience!
Oh what a series of portraits! Great stuff, Helen!
But there’s no doubt about it, its the second one down that really does it for me – I think its a combination of the very pale blue of the bill and around the eyes, the combination of these blues with the orange-browns >>> but most of all the combination of the slight inclination of the head and the direct, rather squinting and questioning eye contact, as if the bird is peering inquisitively at us, wondering what we are.
I look into those eyes and there is direct eye contact – and somewhere behind those eyes, there is a conscious, living and quite alien being / spirit / entity that is looking out at me. Fascinating image!
How are you getting on? Hope you’re fine. Adrian
Fab expressions; they all look slightly mental
Those lovely birds! Amazing …
Will come bck soon to see more!
(First one, looks like me early morning!)
Thank you Eric… and welcome to my blog.. I hope you’ll enjoy coming back for me and making me laugh more too 😀
i’ll try as soon as possible!
Gorgeous Birds! And thanks for stopping by my site!
You’re welcome Brittany
