Just one suggestion Robert, you need to get a little closer. Beautiful capture, I can count the feathers. The Sigma looks like itís doing a great job.
P.S. LOL, I assume your picture will grow up as you become a full member. :P

Default Thanks Tom

If I don't plan on growing up why should my picture??

As for the owl...well I was in a lens testing mood that day cuz the weather was terrible.

I'm pretty happy. Just wish I had the rez of a D60......

Wow.. You don't need any more resolution when you are that close! That one could be printed at 50" and still hold up just fine - nice job!!

Default Wow!

What a wonderful shot of an owl! The feather detail is superb. And the eye...perfect.

Thanks for sharing!

Robert, this is a great shoot....How close where you? I wish I could get a shoot like this from the wild ones that I have been watching for the past several months.

Default Thanks All...

Lin, Darby, Purrcat, Christie, Randall, Jeff...thanks for your comments!

I was probably about 5-6 feet away from the owl. The place where I was has rehab birds that cannot be released, so they are tethered on "runs". The birds can fly from one perch to another, and are not enclosed, so no wires in the way!!

Of course there are big DANGER signs all over the place, because particularly the eagles act very territorially.

I want a sunny day so I can go back!
