Hi wickedwombat.
Post what you have, then if I post too we might just be good enough to be moral support for each other!  :-[
Or perhaps we should start a posting for anyone not comfortable posting their pics here!  8) Perhaps call it "Amateur hour BIF" or perhaps you can come up with a better name. ;D
Let's just post here and show these other folks what they are up against!  ::) :-[

Cheers Graham.

Snowy Owl - take-off from some dunes, - shot from the beach - Martha's Vineyard
Canon 60D - 100-400mm 
ISO225, 235mm, f/7.1, 1/2000  handheld, manual, - center focus

I was sneaking up on this snowy when he took off. Luckily I had a second to refocus and shoot. I was very surprised it came out well.
I'm sure that some may not like the wings being clipped in the image but I really love it!  What a great image, they are so beautiful!  By the time I get back up to the Cape this year, they'll already be gone!  Hope you can grab some more soon!  Really nice!
Thanks for the kind words. I like it also

The wings are clipped as the bird flew right at me, they are clipped in the original image.

I was trying for extreme closeup pictures. A sculptor is doing a statue of a snowy and I have been supplying him picts. I will post the super closeups on the bird portraits pages. I was trying to visually answer the questions, what is the snowy "Mask",  and do Snowy Owls have ears.
