    Oh man, F3.2 @ 300 mm, you must have some good glass. Too bad the body & head is not as sharp as the far wing. Nonetheless a great capture.

    I'm thinking 'mail delivery'. Lovely shot.





    On second thought, it wasn't a Snowy in the Potter films was it?

    Great shot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Altho if I look at it with the obviously perfect 20/20 critical eye of Old Ron, the 3rd feather from the right on its beak is just ever so slightly in a minimal kinda round about technically irratic obtuse sort of off the wall impressionistic left field way....... soft, as in ITS A F&*$ING OWL and as such has soft feathers to enable it to fly silently........ if you are going to comment on a persons images please at least make sensible comments!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yeah, im getting the feeling that i should do that. Looks like you have some great spots there.....and some great birds
    We had a Snowy in Holland not long ago, but there werent alot of people who noticed the leather around his talons :lol: There have been some wild Snowy spottings in the last decades, but nothing to write home about.
    But coming to your place wont happen anytime soon i guess. Have an appointment with the bank next week and then im off to buy an appertment, so goodbye money. Ah well, maybe in a few years...........just make sure you dont stop photographing in the time between :)
