Take A Moment To Marvel At These Unusually Intimate Owl Portraits

Take A Moment To Marvel At These Unusually Intimate Owl Portraits

Take A Moment To Marvel At These Unusually Intimate Owl Portraits

It is notoriously difficult to photograph an owl. The stately birds tend to be close-taloned with their trust, requiring several months to become comfortable with even one human handler – a fact that explains both the rareness of intimate owl portraiture, and the magnificence of these shots by photographer Brad Wilson.

Above: A Western Screech Owl, in profile | All photographs featured by kind permission of Brad Wilson

These portraits belong to a project Wilson calls “Affinity,” a series of images that has grown to include more than 65 species – including an Arctic fox, an Egyptian vulture, and a capuchin monkey – photographed at uncommonly close range. (To truly appreciate these photographs, you’ll want to enlarge them by clicking the magnifying class in the upper left hand corner of each image.)

Spectacled Owl

Bringing the viewer into “common space” with any animal is a challenge, says Wilson. But the most difficult creatures to photograph by far are owls, he tells io9, adding that the hardest shot to capture of an owl is the direct eye contact you see featured in these images.

Eastern Screech Owl

“Owls, like most birds, are very slow to trust people,” he says. “The animals I worked with are living in sanctuaries and need some degree of care by humans to survive.”

Take A Moment To Marvel At These Unusually Intimate Owl Portraits

Western Screech Owl

Typically, he says, a trainer must work with an owl one-on-one for a period of months before being fully accepted by the animal. “The funny thing is – the owl does not bestow that trust on any other human it doesn’t know,” says Wilson, “and will get aggressive if a stranger approaches.”

Barn Owl

An owl’s distrust of new faces – especially one hidden behind a big, professional camera rig – can be counterproductive during a shoot. “During the photo session I was never allowed to touch the subjects or even get really close to them,” Wilson tells io9. “The entire time they were perched on a trainer’s arm.

Eurasian Eagle Owl

Wilson says if he needed the owl positioned a certain way, the trainer would have to try and move his or her body accordingly. “However, this was always a tricky proposition, since owls can rotate their heads approximate 270 degrees, they tended to prefer looking away from me and towards the black background.”

Great Horned Owl

“The frontal gaze was by far the hardest shot to get,” Wilson says, “but, in the end, was the most compelling.”

Long Eared Owl

“There’s a starkness to it, a sense of isolation,” says Wilson in this behind-the-scenes featuretteon his work. There’s a sense, he says, that “you’re on equal playing field with this animal. You’re inhabiting a space with it in a way that’s much more immediate… than you get when” looking at, say, a photograph taken on safari.

But one must remember that this activity cannot be done by everyone, we will need to get trained to involve in this activity, because there are many specifications to be held in mind, before diving from the mountain, the angle at which you have to fall, knowledge of the mountain and speed at which we have to land. Due to the risk involved in this activity, it is named, “tomb stoning”. But if you have proper training, this would be the best adventure activity. Here is the list of the Best locations for Mountain Diving.

Red Rocks Park, Vermont Want to experience the thrill of jumping into ice cold water, Red Rocks Park in Vermont is your destined location, and this place is around 100 acres and has many jumping locations. The highest of them is 80ft, and this place is also very dangerous for beginners because the water would be very cold, and the rocks have very narrow inlets in them which may hurt the divers. So train and study the cliff to tackle it

Red Rocks Park, South Burlington, VT

10. La Quebrada Cliffs, Acapulco, Mexico La Quebrada is the most iconic attraction of Acapulco, Mexico. This place symbolizes the city. Young travellers from all over the world come to this majestic cliff and

jump from this perilous cliff and enter into the water coinciding with waves. For many years divers have been visiting La Quebrada cliffs to dive from the jagged cliff which is 136ft over the ocean and enter into the Pacific Ocean to fight the huge waves that would be ready to push them over the rock. Though the water conditions are quite dangerous here, it has never failed to attract the divers.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has used the search to promote two other objectives â a new crackdown on Hamas and an attempt to discredit the Palestinian unity government formed earlier this month by Western-backed President Mahmoud Abbas, which is supported by Hamas. The Islamic militant Hamas group has praised the abduction of the teenagers but has not claimed responsibility for it.
