March 6, 2013 Sometimes you just get lucky! I came around a bush and saw one of my local owls just sitting in plain view, and at JUST the right distance for the lens I had mounted. 300F4 with 1.4TC on the Nikon V1. This image is UNCROPPED. Mr. Owl was kind enough to sit there while I took 30 shots of him, including removing the teleconverter, setting up the camera for remote release and careful framing. Processing was done in Capture NX2, including sharpening of intensity 40, radius 5 and threshold 0.
