These Marabou Stork are not pretty, but strangely photogenic I think.

Trying out a used Nikon 200-400 I bought last week.  This is a 100% crop or close to it.  I bought a used Nikon D300s just so I could play with it.  It seems a bit noisy, and there is a fair amount of sharpening.  He was in the shadows, so I ended pulling exposure up a stop plus a lot more boost to shadow areas which likely accounts for the noise.

I had been looking for an owl for a long time. I could hear them all the time in and around my house but could never see them. I took this photo handheld @1/40s at almost nightfall, raised the exposure in lightroom. Not one of my best but yet another bird I can cross off my list!

i have a lot of great horned owls around my house. i see them in the daytime midwinter sometimes but the rest of the year i only see them at, or after dark, i have been trying to get a decent shot of one myself for a few weeks but no luck? they are like cops, never around when you need them?

nice pics,

Welcome Swallow. 200 shots later....
I managed to get 2-3 good ones, but, they are a challenge. The tricky bit is trying to get the 5D3 to keep up with the focus. Or, more to the point, trying to learn how to track an object that moves at random. Sometimes it works :)
