I just don't have luck like this.. I've been trying to capture a shot of a Gilded Owl here in VA at a local nature center. No luck though.. I've also been chasing some sort of hawk that I see at the exact same place every day about 12 noon. He never lets me get a good shot though. I need a hide and some patience.

Now those are some closeups! Good catch. You were in the right place at the right time.

6th visit, still stunned.


jmjmsports - It's not luck you need. Patience, as you say, camo, and a bit of skill at moving & tracking. Have you checked out the Wildlife Tips in the Photography forum? Lots of good tips.

If you ask me, it's all all that poutine bits and gravy spread all over the lens and camera. You know owls, especially the Great Gray Owls, just can't resist them. That's why they migrated south to Montreal from farther up north. :mrgreen:

I looked at it briefly but perhaps I'll give it better looking over. The owl I just haven't been able to find. The hawk and I seem to play a game. He'll let me get relatively close to him and as soon as I do, he turns his back.. or moves to another tree and obscures himself behind branches that ruin the shot. One day he'll be in a good mood and let me have a nice shot.:D

Remember that predator birds have less peripheral vision than prey birds. When the hawk is looking away from you that's a good time to move forward. Just remember that predator birds usually have excellent eyesight - they'll see you a long time before you see them!
