Common Waxbill - Honolulu Sept 8
60D and my old Tammron 70-300 - (small easy to pack).
A flock of these birds surrounded me as my wife spent 5 HOURS shopping at the swap meet around the Aloha stadium, thank god I brought my camera. I did some urban birding and saved my sanity.

I really like the first one, especially the colours. Great capture.

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,

Thanks

I see them most of the time when I'm going to work in the early mornings. I have to drive very alert where I live because of the population of wildlife mainly deer where I live. I've seen some pretty big owls in my area but of course its always when I don't have a camera with me!

Har..! I am counting Chauncey's spectacular photo as one. So I will match Diablo - except the photos have to be at least 2000 pixels on one edge, because manly men don't crop excessively.  ;)
