    and a few short eared owl shots., and a sunset

    1 first, a nearby Redtail Hawk

    2 It took me 15 minutes to get this close, and there is a heavy crop.

    3 Flight shots are so tough with such a small bird.

    7 when I opened these last 2 up, there was no doubt in my mind that this landscape crop was the shot, and after going back and forth a few times, I think I like the portrait crop best.

    We were on our way home, at about 615 pm, after driving almost all day as we started out at 720 am, on a wild owl chase up north to Bobcaygeon. (750 kms, 3 hrs there, 3 hours back, 90 bucks in fuel.. a headache for Daisy, and not 1 shot)

    A quick glance at the sunset, and seeing this redtail in the scene.. I hit the brakes, and backed up in a real hurry, as I knew the sun was seconds away from disappearing. It was just great luck to have the bird in view.

    as always, thanks for looking!

    Great series raymond, they're real nice. I prefer the composition of the first sunset one, but the second has a nicer yellow tone i think..... i'm rubbish at decision makeing.... but i'll go with the first one, maybe with a touch more brightness/contrast. great shots tho :thumbup:

    Oh wow these are GREAT.

    I really like number 4 and love both sunsets. I can't decide which I like better. Love them both.

    Great work Ray. There was a few of us that went on a wild owl chase Saturday. However, I think you win on the mileage :)

    Great shots Sir Raymond. As for the sunset, I am having a hard time with that one, but Im leaning towards the first one.
    If you head to Ottawa....a friend at work was telling me that Cornwall has a crow infestation. There are so many , they dont know what to do with them. Maybe you can catch one in a cemetery

    Great shots Raymond. Love the fearless threesome :) I prefer the colours of the first sunset but I can't decide which format I prefer. They're both great :)
