Got an amazing Christmas present today with my first ever snowy owl capture. These owls are uncommon in CO, nevermind close to the Denver metro area.

Some people ask me if a crop sensor camera is sharp and croppable with telephotos, and especially with teleconverters. Here's an example, handheld, shot wide open, with 1.4x. To note, I did not scare the owl from its perch...crows made it move and it flew towards me because I was upwind. This was probably 50 meters away. Here's the original and the final crop. A bit overcropped maybe, but the detail in the feet and eyes was too good to not have shown off.

Wow! I'm just South of Denver... I've never seen one around here. May I ask where you found it?

BTW kidding on all of that. Seriously, the 7D Mark II has a great sensor and the Sigmalux still delivers. It had zero trouble focusing on her in this light...which is just the security light in the backyard lighting her. Getting the white balance was a bit tough but thats not the cameras fault

Thanks! I’ve never shot there. May have to go check it out soon.
I tend to shoot at Chatfield mostly - between work and home!

That's right... So you got your Featherdale (or my alternate suggestion) trip planned?

Yes, I made it to Featherdale. It was rainy in the Blue Mountains when I went (well, there is a rainforest there!). I got many shots which I'll post slowly so I don't saturate anyplace. But Australia is a wonderful place though I barely saw it!

These birds seem to be unique to Sydney- I didn't see these Ibises in other places.

Bin Chickens is their unfortunate designation these days. (Not their fault us humans turned their habitat into concrete jungles and leave huge amounts of wasted food around)

I've also heard they are called "tip turkeys". No, not their fault at all. It's still exotic to me, as is this noisy miner (?) I noticed near the WWI memorial, near Cap'n Cook.

My friend calls them FAs. Rhymes with trucking barge poles. (She does not like them due their aggression in driving other smaller birds out of their territory, which to them is everywhere)
