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?
.....Some lenses are really bad with a teleconverter and this is one of them.
Yeah, about to get a Canon 1.4 III TC for my 300 f4. I'm aware of the impact of the TC (AF speed, some loss in IQ), but, for those days where I need that little extra, it'll be handy in the kit.....until I get a 600mm ;)
5D mk3 with grip, 300 f4 L, 100 IS Macro L, 50 f1.4, 50 f1.8, 40 f2.8 pancake, 35 f2, 1.4x TC III, Zeiss 15mm f2.8, 24 f1.4 L
580EX II, MT-24EX Macro Flash
EF 12mm and 25mm II Extension tubes

Don and JThompson, nice owls.  Amazing how the screech owl's plumage matches the texture of the tree bark exactly!

recent portrait of  Nuthatch shot with a 5dIII (loving the camera)

Mr. Few Shots, nice, I'm guessing a 600mm lens?

Here's a nuthatch of mine, done with a lowly 70-200 f/4 on my crop camera.

Indeed, so sharp, so cuddly.  I wonder if I just petted his fuzzy head...would he bite my finger off?  I once had a cockatoo bite nearly to my finger bone, so I think I could take the pain.

See! This is what happens when camera manufacturers do not release cameras in quick succession. People go out and enjoy taking pictures!

;D

Steven, the Shoveler is alive with color and contrast!  The ripples go very well with it, also.
