After trying to pluck up the courage to post a picture on here - I’ve finally decided to ‘throw caution to wind’ / ‘live dangerously’, etc. etc. So - here it is - my first posting - please don’t get too excited!

Very nice John, better than most peoples first posts, and better than a lot of people subsequent posts so you have to keep up this high standard now ;)

Good to have you at Steve's and as has already been said we have a good bunch or Pany shooters here so get stuck in.

Thanks for the comments - very much appreciated. My apologies for not supplying any real information - I was having enough problems trying to post the picture! ;)

Camera is the FZ38 - which I’ve had for about 6 months. The photo’s details are: f-stop: f/4.4; Exposure: 1/250; and ISO 80.

I was visiting an Owl Sanctuary - which has a varied collection of Owls, Eagles and other birds of prey. The photos were taken during a flying demonstration. At either end of, and at the rear of, the public area there are three “perches” which the birds use. This was the only time I managed to be “in the right place and at the right time” - I guess I was about 4 feet from this perch. I took two photos of this owl - and the first is posted below - details are: f/5, 1/500th, and ISO-250. The camera was set to “iA”. Both pictures are uncropped.

Mark1616: “so you have to keep up this high standard now” - I know - that's what's bothering me! :D
