Beautiful capture and a possible candidate for this coming 'Alone' challenge?

Thanks ;) I was hoping to enter one for the "new beginnings" challenge as it's something we want to do a lot more of this year but yes, luckily it falls into the new challenge theme too :)

I love the composition and detail here.

Cheers. It's only with the little FE35 but I can no way knock the images it produces!!

Yes sir it is a Mockingbird. The only bierd out back I'd call friend. They let me get super close, sometimes within 10ft/3m. They
are smart enough to realize I'm never hurt any of them and always bring food.

Success and failure.
I don't mind up posting my failures even when they are a huge success :)
This weekend after the Sandhill Cranes we went into the Smokies (GSMNP) and to
Cades Cove where we camped with the hopes of a Short-eared Owl.
Last month we spent 3 days in Ohio looking for no avail.
Once deep into Cades Cove during the day we spotted two Norther Harriers---where there
are Harriers there are Short-eared Owls (SEOs). Same terrain, just different times of day.

So we parked and waited, hoping one would show up before dark. Sadly the Sun set but we still
had hopes. Eventually we decided to drive slowly down the gravel road back to the loop road and make
our way out. I spotted him in the distance, asked Poof to turn the van hard left. Rolled down the window
and got three shots off.

I'll be the first to admit (Gene HELP!!) I know little about flash photography, less about night time Owl photography.
This shot posted was the best of the lot, at ISO 800 I just pulled up the exposure as best as I could in PScc.

So failure for IQ but a huge success in finding (for our area they are super rarities and only come when it is bitterly cold) this
elusive creature.
I'm not done with them though and I'm already planning another trip for my next off week to hopefully find more, but up north.
So my first and only SEO portrait-

For telephoto lenses and an on camera flash, I've used a 'better beamer' fresnel flash extender but don't care for it due to the way it lights up the bird's eye unnaturally. With the dynamic range of the Sony sensor, I'd try to increase exposure in post if need be first and not use a flash at all.

Around the house, if I use flash it's off camera to avoid eye reflection issues.

Gene I know off-camera is best but there was no room with me the camera hanging out the window...if we stopped the vehicle and opened the door I feared he'd fly, well
he flew anyway :)
When I google images of this owl I see images taken in broad daylight....I'm just in the wrong place for that.

Since it's been raining pretty good all day, I've had not much to do but edit a couple of images. So here are a pair of shots from around New Years.

This was actually taken with the 17-40 while the girls and I were hiking across the sea floor during last weeks negative tide.
