Very cool. Why not add in the shots before and after this one for fun? :)

He actually looks like he's falling off his perch. Did you tell him a good joke? :lol:

LOL! Nope.. he was coming in from a low angle, and his momentum pulled him up once his feet grabbed the perch...

Wow, super nice! Putting that 10 fps to good use? And following Alveric 's thought, mine was "Dang wind gusts!":-)

Looking at the top couple of inches of the post it looks like this isn't the first time the owl has fallen off its perch. :)

Thanks, Rog! Yeah, the frame rate on the 7DII is really nice for this kind of stuff...

LOL! They do perch there fairly regularly, and with those meathooks, I imagine any regular perch gets a bit lacerated!
