My personal favorite wildlife image of the year 2018 (the eagle owl in our closest neighborhood) completes section 2: Moorland of my Christmas calendar. Section 3: Winter Photography will start tomorrow.
After several days of cold feet and patience and 1 day before I had to return the X-T2 and the 100-400 lens, my wife spotted the eagle owl high in a tree looking down at us. Handheld is difficult at this angle and in the light conditions of a forest. But I managed to get some cool shots of this awesome owl.
We decided to call the owl “Theo”. Happy days. Reinhold
