Congrats..... I don't blame you for being excited. Owls are so cool.

Your photograph is very nice. I look forward to the rest of them.

This is a beautiful image! I really like Sagebrush quite a bit, and I have aways loved images with wintry frost and snow, so it's only natural that this is one I'd love, as it combines some of my favorite elements. Great light, too.

Would appreciate seeing basic info such as what camera was used, what lens, what focal length, ISO, shutter speed, and aperture.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Tom, This was hand held and taken off guard so... 7d 4005.6 Shot in Shutter priority, Iso 100 / f6.3 / 1/1000 hope this helps. It was FREEZZZING so I am impressed they are as clear as they are. I was shaking something fierce.

Jeremy, I do not know my Owl species so I hope someone can chime in and point this out to me as well.

Beautiful! Great contrast between all the snow and the colors of the owl. They're one of my favorite things to photograph
