Hi Mackguyver.
Well if I'd posted it I would have been able to tell you,.......it's an owl! Slightly better than its a bird but not much!
Another great shot.

Cheers Graham.

Graham, thank you for the supportive words and it's not always the easiest world to navigate these days for sure.  Getting back to my point of this post...here's another one - this is of the mate of the first barred owl I posted, I think, or they may be the same bird.  It was taken after they flew off together and landed in a nearby tree.  Unfortunately I can't tell the males & females apart:

7D + Grip, 40D + Grip, 20D, EF-S 17-85 Kit lens, EF 70-200 f2.8 L IS II USM, EF 2x III, Sigma 150-500, Sigma 17-70 f2.8-4 C, 50mm f1.8, 550EX some Filters Remotes Macro tubes Tripod heads etc!
20D, BG-E2N, 17-85mm, 50mm are pre loved. :)

Love shooting Owls - here's a few of my favourites.  Most of these have been shot with Canon 5d II, Canon 1D IV or Canon 5D III and either Canon 100-400L or Sigma 120-300 f2.8 (and 2x teleconverter).

There are so many incredible images in this thread!

I had the absolute pleasure of playing with a 400 2.8 for a couple days. During that time, I managed to capture this humble image.

The only humble thing is your post - this is a beautiful shot.  I love the head tilt and huge ears along with the colorful foliage.

Thank you very much! I was amazed at how a long telephoto really changes the way you look at the environment around you. Until this moment, I had never seen an owl in the wild before. :)

Absolutely great shots, I took a few of owls myself recently, happy with them but I see I have a way to go.  Some of the focusing on moving subjects is simply sublime.

As for the title, excellent title, if anyone's offended by it they probably deserve to be.  Let's not let this tyrannical move to "political correctness" rob us of any more of the language's rich variety!

I hope the subject line wasn't too subtle ;).  I don't see a thread devoted to owls, so I'll get one started.  I think they are really cool and I've been very fortunate to find a few of these guys but have never actually gone looking for them, and yes, most of mine are barred owls:

Barred Owl - hooting his head off for his mate from his fishing perch:


Great Horned Owl - spotted the silhouette just before sunrise:


Barred Owl - in my backyard - he comes by almost every evening but this is the first time he was close enough to actually see:


My first wild (barred) owl in my front yard - not a great shot, but I was really excited to finally get a shot of one in the wild!:


Eastern Screech Owl (Captive) at the local zoo:


Dear friend, Mr. Mackguyver.

Ha, Ha, Ha---Dear my Teacher Mr. ajfotofilmagem.
Yes, " This rare species is the "busty hooters"  ", yes, You are the expert of the species of the hooters any way, But I know that Mr. Mackguyver is a Expert of the Night lifes of these beautiful hooters too.
But this specie, We do not need the long , long lens such as 600 mm or 800 mm to take their photos, I love to use 12 mm. lens , and to get super close to their noses, and see their beautiful eyes too.
Well, We just want to have " FUN thinking in Sunday night.
Have a great night, Sir.
