Default Grey Owl photos that I wish I could take.

For all of the folks here on the forum who enjoy bird photography, I wanted to share some photos of Grey Owls that was taken by another photographer using an Olympus E-5.

Photographer Bruce Hamm has posted 14 recent shots of Grey Owls that are all impressive. What makes them even more impressive is that all are hand-held, and taken in overcast, snowy conditions.

Here is the link to view the photos. I think that everyone will enjoy seeing these fine owl shots, and seeing how well the E-5 performs in less than ideal conditions.

Excellent collection of shots, I'd love to be able to see them here. As for hand held though, that shouldn't be a problem with the shutter speeds he's getting (1/500 -1/3200) along with the stabilization in the camera.

My Snowy owl pics were at about 1/200 with the 70-300 at 300, pretty much maxed out with the old 500. His are a lot cleaner looking.

I'm just thinking of the weight of the 300 and having the patience to snap those shots. All superbly taken .. and makes you wonder how much better a newer SLR could be

Those really are stunning - thanks for the link. And they're a reminder that I need to look at the Photos thread there more often - I usually just look at the discussions.

PS: I wish you could take photos like that too.

Just kidding

Same here, I don't look at the photos over on that site very often, because of their little thumbnails, etc. Their photos sections are not nearly as viewable as here at Steve's. But I do skim thru them about once a week and this series definitely was worth the view.

Those are incredible shots. Steven, I can take shots just like that with my old E510 but to prove it you will need to loan me the 300 F2.8 for say around a year or so until I find the owls

Eric, I think you should ask Steven for the 90-250 also. It would add some flexibility.
