    This is my first post. This was a difficult image to get right in the post processing, cause the owl was in shadow and the tree had very bright sunlight.

    taken with a 500mm f4, tc-17e, nikon f100, fill flash and Fuji Sensia 100 FILM!

    Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone! And thanks to Ray for the invite. Don't let him fool you, I'm just a regular, middle class guy. :)

    Ah, welcome a second time over to ThePhotoForum, and thank you Ray for bringing Scott here. So there will be just one more very good bird photographer around to make me pale in shame with my humble attempts at getting our little garden birds into the frame... but I can live with that, I am strong :confused: !!!

    Joking apart, this is a very good photo here, given the circumstances that you describe, Scott, and my method of taking photos would not have allowed me to get to this result, apart from the fact that this owl would have been a tiny spec in a huge frame with me, and before I'd have crept in closer --- zoomed in would end at 300mm with me --- it would have flown away. Birds do that to me.

    Welcome to the forum!

    You definitely did well to pull off what appears to have been a tough exposure, well done!

    Welcome to the Forum (from another Noob!)
    This is an excellent shotl...I agree with LaFoto,
    by the time I would have crept close enough to get
    this picture the bird would have flown the coop!
    Looking forward to seeing more of your work!
