    Today i had the chance to shoot Hedwig (yes, that is really his name) in flight. Never had that chance, since she only recently started flying again. And let me tell you that it is hell to take shots of a white bird. Hard to expose right, but i think i made some nice shots
    Here they are:

    Wow, lovely shots of a beautiful bird. I'd be happy to get any of these shots. #2 is nice of the bird flying, but it's a shame about the hose in the b/g (I know, it can't be helped). And #10 is very cool too. BTW, #5 doesn't show up (and I've refreshed my screen a few times).

    nice shooting Daan, I was at a Raptor show today, and fired a ton of frames, in very bright light. I am not sure I like the harsh light, but lots of detail.

    I hope we get a chance to find a snowy in the wild this winter!

    Thanks Ray. The bright light can be a real pain when shooting white birds (barn owls, snow owls) but when i shoot alot, there should be something that comes out ok :)
    Hope to see you raptor shots soon. And i just cant believe you got snowies in the wild there. Saw the pics last year and thats just to groovy for words.
    Pretty weird, i can shoot all kinds of birds at work, but im still hunting for that wild bird pic :)
