=Cap'n Fishy;19445887]A chance encounter today. I was not out to photograph birds, and I had the 70-200 mm lens on - so very heavy crop. The beaters on the pheasant shoot flushed a barn owl. Not seen it for a couple of years and don't know if it is the same one from 2 years past, but it was in the same spot... so... Anyway, it was nice to see it again.

darn I would be happy with that !! lovely detail and exposure. You don't always need a ' in your face shot' to get a good image :-D

smooth colors well exposed and lovely feather detail

Thanks much for your comments on my harrier shot. The evenings getting darker earlier help me with the better colors!

I like your kite shots. You got the bird great despite the light, including those sinister burning eyes! Very nice.

Bald Eagle
We were overjoyed observing last years pair of Eagles rebuilding their nest after the damaging hurricane.
Happy trails.

Beautifully captured shot of the Little Egret, RAL! I get the sensation that this guy is floating on a cloud. It's a very appealing shot. The dragonfly ain't too shabby either.;-)a You need to start a thread and call it, dragonflies in flight(DIF).:-P

Both of these Black-shouldered kite shots are spot on, havelock! You really nailed the exposures on both of them, and I like the fact that you posted the two different wing positions.

Wonderful capture of the Northern Harrier, Paul! It stands out really well, and gives such a nice 3D affect.

What a crack'in shot this is sogs! Very sharp image. The fish is huge, and it appears as though he's giving the Osprey a free ride somewhere. :p

Wonderful Osprey capture Mike.

Many thanks, Paul. I surely do appreciate your inspiring compliment.

Thanks for commenting on the harrier shot LD, appreciate it. I had seen this one in the distance over a couple of days but this was the first chance of a decent shot.

....nice job on the Osprey, another of my favorite raptors. Can be tricky to expose with both light and dark coloring but looks like you nailed it!

Thank you kindly for the Osprey compliment, EB. You are so right about the tricky exposure. I'll get an Osprey shot I like, only to find that the white on the birds head is blown out.vmad

Wow, that is an excellent shot of an osprey in flight.

I thank you very much for your thoughtful comment, Ed. It's much appreciated.
