It has been raining and was still very cloudy and overcast today and all of these were taken from my back porch. The distance ranged from about 15 ft to 25 ft and all were cropped pretty heavily. I was using my 20D, 100-400L, 1.4x TC and 420EX Flash with the camera on AV mode with the shutter speed at 1/250th and the flash set at -1/3 step. And being that I was on the back porch I used my tripod also which I don't normally do. Any comments, good or bad are always welcome.

Wonderful shots Houston! I just recently purchased the 550EX Flash for my 20D and am still learning. I also purchased the Better Beamer and hope to put both to good use as soon as Great Horned Owls are nesting.
