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

awesome photo
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.

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.
Nice shots! I was meant to go out to shoot the owls but the weather is really crappy for the next week...
The storm gave us some nasty snow that isn't even nice for photos.
Were they taken at the park?
