Hi all,

Haven't been out shooting much but finally got out today and lucked out on some birds. Feels great to be back out shooting. All of these are mostly full frame. I did learn something today though. Richard was shooting right next to me with his Canon 40D and 500mm. When the light got tough (backlit owl and harsh hawk) he had problems with contrast, and we did have some time to work on these birds. We concluded that the D300 has a bit more dynamic range than the 40D - by about a stop and a half, and that is quite a bit. Interesting....

Thanks for looking.

Best,

Jose

Nice shots. I like the sad look in the first one. I am used to owls giving me the mean "kiss off" look.

Is John Chestnut Park a good location in February? If so I (we) will have to go there next year.
