Owls from my lens

Changde Wu    2018-01-16

My first sight of a owl was in Yellowstone national park in 2011。I am fortunate having photoed many owls after I started photoing wildlife. Following photos show case the owls I have shot so far. I have dedicated articles show case each in detail. I hope that the list will be increased in the future. So, please stay tuned.
