Went out today to try and get some Snowy Owl pictures.... he was not cooperative... The closest we got to it was 480 meters... The first picture was taken with an SX-50 at 150X (50X optical and 3X digital) zoom as it was snowing....

Then we decided to have some fun.... While taking the second picture car after car stopped with people getting out to see "snowy"......

LOL too funny Don

I am impressed the poo is so in focus  ;D

as I've been having a hard time capturing sharp images of larger flying birds....

One of my better attempts below (using a under-reaching lens, and still wondering how best to get static image links from Flickr that are sufficiently large).

A Black Bulbul, an Asian bird:


This Black-Crowned Night Heron is not quite as cooperative as Harry.
Probably because I failed to bribe him/her.


A Snowy Owl:

I just figured this out, so I'll share my new-found knowledge:

From your image in Flickr, click on the "more ways to share" icon and select the "Grab HTML/BBCode" tab. Then select Original from the drop-down and select the BBCode radio button. Then copy paste the text that appears in the window and paste it here.
There might be better ways to do this, but this worked for me.

Thanks, Click and Jack!

Ah, problem solved -- thanks, sagittariansrock! The part I missed was resizing the image from the menu. The Flickr BBCode has the convenience of doing an auto link-back (said to be required by their terms).

So...here's a perched Spotted Dove. Again, heavily cropped as I only have the 70-200 IS II.

Brilliant timing  ;D ;D ;D and a very nice shot ... I suppose one could get away without a hat, if only one bird is having diarrhea, but ducking a flock of birds, when all them are having a serious bout of diarrhea at the same time, could be a bit too difficult.  ;D ;D ;D
