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..

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