Couple of Barred Owls
10 months ago

The snowy owl activity has slowed down just a bit...or just been distracted with Barred owls that have kept my owl quotient up. the first one, I flushed accidentally, but it ended up flying back towards me and kept watch up in a white pine while quite 'awake'...the 1020mm at f2.8 really works well in a walk around capacity, this was fading light, (pmode with minimum shutter of 1/250)handheld at 1/250 (f2.8) at ISO 320 at about 50-60 feet away, figure with a f5.6 or above, we are talking about ISO 1200+.

the second one much better conditions in bright hazy overcast/light, 30-40 feet away while he was quietly roosting, technically better no doubt, but the first was a fun to watch while so active.

originals are %50 for space/speed.

unless otherwise stated, all are fz200+E17ED
