K-3 - DA*60-250 + HD DA 1.4 TC @350mm ƒ5.6- 0.6 s -800 ISO

Barred Owl, we haven't seen him in the yard for a while but he was back tonight.

He was back on his perch hunting mice tonight... it's funny, but he looks exactly the same as he did last time. Maybe it was a little darker tonight. .06 seconds exposure usually 800 ISO and wide open.







This last one, 200 ISO and 2.5 seconds, this guy really holds still for you. It's not hand held...

Is that a wound on his neck?

I thought it was, turned out its called 'Sambar sore'. Something about the 'rut' season, pheromones and 'attraction'. Apparently it goes away in a few months.

Which sounds like it is indeed an injury incurred in a duel with another similarly equipped stag. Nice set of photos!

I'm still trying to catch a pair of Redpolls that come to feeders in the garden ,before they get on the feeders[ easier said than done]
I did manage to catch a couple of other birds. K-5/Sigma 300mm f2.8 EX DG/Kirk window mount

I take a week off and you guys just keep upping the ante!


I can confirm that Trinidad has a lot more photogenic birds than Ontario at this time of year. My favourite was the Tufted Coquette, just two and three quarter inches long (the world's smallest bird, the Bee Hummingbird, is two and a half).








The autofocus on my 300mm DA* stopped functioning for a while, so this was taken with the 55-300 DA.

Love the Wren. Around here they tend to hide under logs.
