Male cockatiel resting contently on his home.  I was mainly testing at ISO 8000 with noise graininess. Image is SOOC.

Some Great Grey Owls.  I was wishing for longer lenses as I took these. They are a fairly rare visitor to Ottawa, Ontario, Canada... There are three of them and they appear to be staying in the same area as I have spotted them three days in a row. If any of you are in the area, contact me and I can let you know where to find them.

Out of interest, what lens were you using Don?

A Sigma 120-400.... at the 400 end. The two shots are cropped to the pixel. I have others shot with a 1.4 teleconverter on the lens and they resolve less than the bare lens. Some lenses are really bad with a teleconverter and this is one of them.
First shot - 1/200 at f7.1, ISO320, 400mm
Second shot - 1/800 at f7.1, ISO320, 400mm
