This is disgusting.  People taking pictures of beautiful songbirds and here I sit in Alberta with 10" of snow and -25C.  It is sunny though and I do at least have Chickadees that visit me ;)

That's some cold weather for November!  I won't give you the details of my weather in Florida - instead I'll post a bird that makes my climate seem cold - with the caveat that it was captive (and I should get rid of that distracting bokeh spot):



mackguyver,

Beautiful colors and nice sharp focus on the eye.

Guy in 2 has mental health problems.
That's a cruel assessment of one of our more prominent members...........   :'(

Very true.  The Guy in 2 doesn't have mental health problems.  He is clearly the best photographer ever.

+1...and look how happy he is too! ;D

Here are three owls: an Eastern Screech Owl, a Great Horned Owl, and a Barred Owl.

Great owl shots - are they all wild?  If so, I'm extremely impressed.  If not, they are still beautiful photos, but I will know you, too, are a mere mortal.  I love owls, but they are so freaking hard to find out in the wild!  Here's my best owl shot to date - a very noisy little Barred Owl:



Great shot!

In India there is a common insult dished out with the phrase "Ullu ke Patthe", the literal translation of which works out to "Owl's disciple". Owls are considered pretty dumb birds and the phrase "Ullu ke Patthe" is used to call someone an "Idiot". Most average Indians use this phrase a fair few times in a day!

Very few Indians can look at an owl shot without a chuckle.   

Cheers ... J.R.


In parts of the western world, owls are considered wise (even though they are not).

Looks natural to me. I don't think I would have guessed HDR. Wish we had pretty fall colors like that here in Hawaii (leaves are either green or dead brown).

But on the other hand, in January you'll be Hawaii - and I'll be in Michigan looking at snow and bare trees, and freezing!

Good point ;D

Cheetah IS....now that's something I never thought I would ever see ;D

That's it !!, Cheetah IS, and for all those Canon Knockers saying Canon are no longer being innovative, Canon have brought "Cheetah IS" to the Market first, Take that Nikon !!! & Sony to.

Here's a recent fall landscape shot with my 6D and the 24-105mm lens. I gave it an HDR treatment to bring out the colors - hopefully it's not too over-the-top!

And here's another Barred Owl - again at a bird rehabilitation center, although a different one from my earlier shots.

Well done, Pugshot. Sharp with nice bokeh and the red berries really makes it interesting with more color.

@mackguyver:  if you want to see a great in-the-wild owl shot, check this out:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/edpost/10752117233/#in/photostream/

The photographer, Ed Post, has many other great bird shots, but the owl shot is incredible!


Wow! That is impressive. I wouldn't want to be a mouse in that scene.

I really admire those lucky souls who have the opportunity and stamina to trek around the world into the wild and take such amazing nature shots. I will have to be content to see it through their lens except for an occasional trip to a zoo. :)
