I went looking for snowy owls yesterday at Edwin Forsyth (the hawk was very photogenic)... Anyone got a 600mm they're not using ??

Canon 7D 400mm L f5.6

That is rather phenomenal. You must have been pretty close, to get that perspective that clearly.

I'm guessing 25 ft , maybe..

Very nice image Steven. Composition includes that extra, both showing the habitat and the nice reflection. What kind of post processing did you put it through?

Thanks Don Haines - is a species of cormorant endemic to New Zealand but you are correct as it sure is a bit unusual looking :)

Not bad for your first time, actually mighty good for your first one!  It's quite a thrill to finally see one, isn't it?
