Show us your Hooters (Owls)
« on: July 02, 2014, 01:35:07 PM »
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:

Here's a few of mine:













There's Eagle Owls, A Snow Owl and a long eared Owl.
All taken with a 5DIII or 7D and either a 70-200 f2.8 LIS II with a 1.4x TC, 400mm f5.6L or a 400mm f2.8 LIS and a very sturdy tripod.

I hope the subject line wasn't too subtle ;)

Perhaps we can all take greater care not to offend half of the population.  I, for one, would welcome more female members on this forum and would love to hear their input.  And I would not want others turning away because they belonged to a minority group and saw how other groups were being treated here.  I respect your photography and your useful input on this forum, mackguyver, but I question the necessity of a subject line that reduces women to nothing more than a part of their anatomy.

No one likes being singled out in a negative way, whether it is because of race, religion, gender identity, ethnicity, or something else not relevant to the item at hand.  Yes, I get you intended to be funny... the question is, do you get how a woman feels hearing/reading such things?  If you have doubts try talking to some about this thread, especially those who work in what are considered traditionally "male" roles.  I talked to some and those I spoke with expressed a lot of anguish.

No disrespect to you Scott, you're entitled to your opinion...I respect you speaking your mind, but this world we live in nowadays is too hypersensitive, and a person can't even make a joke or speak their mind without worry...it's too bad.   

Men are supposed to be attracted to female anatomy, there is nothing wrong with being open about that fact....again, fact.

Women...you are more than welcome here in CR, and I for one, think you are the better half!  :)
