Ok, I wish this shot of a Snowy Owl was an "in the wild" shot as Eric S's was several weeks ago. But I couldn't pass up the opportunity to take this shot of the Snowy at the Oregon Zoo I visited this past Saturday.

Canon 20D, 300mm f4L IS lens, ISO 800, 1/100 second.

Nicely done. A good looking full adult female. I'll be posting a captive owl shot later tonight myself. I think you'll like it.

Hey, how long have you had the 20D???? Did I miss that switch?

Good to see you here, I'd started to wonder where you went.

Thanks, Eric. I'll be looking forward to seeing your captive owl shot.

Where ya' been, guy? I've been using the 20D since the end of this past September. All the shots I took in Israel were with the 20D.

As far as where I've been... it's just the business of life getting more hectic that has had me preoccupied with other things. It's a cyclical thing...

Oh, ya. Of course. I knew that, just forgot. It's been a long day (and becoming a long week. We're switching revision control systems at work... and I'm overseeing it.)

I'll be posting the first of the shots very soon. Lets just say you'd have to fly a long way in a plane to see one of the owls....

All of the above and nice work on the glass-like eye reflections. Beautiful bird.

Thanks to both thekman and Norm!

Norm, this 300mm f4L IS lens is sweet. It is so forgiving - handheld in low light and I can still get sharp shots with it!
