I took this image 5-6 months ago and just forgot to post it. This was the first time I had ever seen an adult Barred Owl so I was quite excited. It isn't the exact in flight shot I was hoping for and still trying to get, but I am happy with it none the less.

Enjoy.

7d with 300 2.8.

I like the BG in the second shot. It looks so wild.

Isn't there always niggling little item we think could be better? I'd certainly be pleased with these. Good job.

Of course! I just want a shot where he is flying right at the camera and looking into it.

I deleted the second picture since I wasn't happy with it.
