Short-eared Owl

You’re not going to believe this but I’ve actually messed up a few exposures in my day. No, it’s true, and I take full responsibility even though it was probably the camera’s fault most of the time. I’m pretty good at rescuing those photos in post processing too and you won’t believe this either but sometimes I can’t. No no, it’s true, and I’m not trying to deflect blame when I say it was probably photoshop’s fault! The sun had all but set when this Short-eared Owl flew by in the darkness, and while I couldn’t save the photo in the traditional sense, under exposing it further and bumping the highlights revealed the true image of an owl.
