Good evening everyone.

It seems like forever since I have been able to shoot in anything other than
dark, overcast and heavy snow conditions.

Today was cold but provided photo enthusiasts with some nice warm lighting.

I have shot many sets of the Bards near where I live but they have all been at 1600 ISO or greater with flat lighting. They were also usually shots where they were hidden behind cover i.e. branches and to be honest I was very unhappy with them.

Although these are still not perfect, they have basically replaced all the previous shots of this Raptor I have taken thus far.

Thanks for looking.

Great Looking Set!!!

Thank you Gary. Believe me when I say, that means a lot to me coming from you as I have found you
to be one of the best birders I have seen around here. That's a big reason why your images were missed
around here.

Great set of shots

Thanks Ken. Not being a seasoned shooter myself, it's nice to have some descent light once in
a while. Light means everything to me. :)

Thank you JTF, very much.

Funny thing is for me, I went to Amherst Island and spent quite some time there and I only saw one Saw Whet. And that little guy was hiding under a pretty thick pine.

Very nice series of Images, a viewing pleasure of a Bird I have never seen in the wild.

Thank you Sprint,

I am not sure what or where Presquile is but this set was taken at Lemoine Point Conservation Area in Kingston Ontario.

Very nice series of Images, a viewing pleasure of a Bird I have never seen in the wild.

Thanks Dan, appreciate it. This Barred can be hard to find at times.

Well done.

Thank you Stan, thanks for looking.

The_Caper... Presqu'ile is at Brighton just an hour west of Kingston. That's where everyone has been going to get the Barred owls.

Thank you Gerard. Those two shots are officially my very first BIF shots. I hope to get more over the next month or so.

Great series.

Thanks Cyclop, very much appreciated.

All nice shots. # 3 and 5 are my favorites though.

I am still waiting for my first owl capture. Did the owl mind you being that close? Did it allow you to approach it without getting too concerned?
