    I'm way-impressed! These are very nice! The snowy owl is my fav. Is #2 a female Piliated?

    I just discovered BPN (Bird Photographers dot net) with a large number of great bird photographers if you're not aware of it.

    I was wondering about that as I never thought of them as being so light in color (and assumed that you hadn't found an Ivory Bill). Are you using a 500 f/4 or 600 f/4 for these or something more mundane (e.g. affordable) ?

    LOL... I use the 500 F4 with a 40D attached and sometimes with the 1.4 Extender. I do all my shooting handheld unless I am in a blind then I use a tripod

    I was afraid of that :(

    Anyway, they're beautiful images.

    You've got some nice captures. I'd love to get a Snowy Owl!
