Hi Joe,

Thanks, glad you like the shot.

I was driving slowly along a quiet country road and spotted this fellow just back from the shoulder of the road at eye level. I stopped the car and slowly got out with camera in hand.
I was dumbfounded when he didn’t move, so I moved slowly around the front of the car with my camera to my eye and started shooting……………he didn’t move a muscle.
I was within 25 feet of him and he stayed in that position until I got back in the car and left.

Like I said above………………..today, I got lucky.

That may be the best image I've ever seen from the 18-135!

Glad you were there to experience it. I tell people they'll never see something like that when they are sitting on the couch. That is one of the reasons I make myself get out when I don't feel like it.

I had an experience like that once. I saw an owl in the tree of my neighbor's yard. I couldn't believe it! I had been trying out my macro lens in my yard when I saw the owl. Anyway, I started snapping away. I can tell you I was pretty excited!

Except that later I discovered that it was not a real owl! :oops:

I don't know WHY my neighbor has a fake owl in his tree. He is a pretty weird guy, and I guess I can just add this to all of his other weirdnesses.

Not saying that is what happened to you at all, of course. Your story just reminded me of my own experience with an owl that didn't move--although my experience did not have as satisfactory an ending as yours did! ;-)a

Reading Gord's post I was waiting for a punch line like that, or that it was dead.

My brother's a yachtsman and he keeps a fake owl or two, or even feather dusters that he reckons look like owls, mounted on spars of his yacht. He reckons it keeps other birds away, birds that would otherwise roost on the spars and poo all over the boat. Maybe your neighbour has something like that in mind.

I really don't know what's in that guy's mind. He's done some very strange things over the past 18 years. Very, very strange.

Thanks to Canon for taking their sweet time, I don't have a 600mm for the foreseeable future, so I'm making it work with the 100-400 II, extenders, and camera bodies. When it comes to sheer reach, the 80D w/ 100-400 + 1.4x gets me right in my preferred range for birding.
