Man I wish I had an opportunity to really shoot this camera before this guy flew in and hovered right in front of me!

No time for a tripod...no time to set the focus settings exactly as I would have liked them. I had enough presence to spin the EV and try and lock him in a 30mph wind.....

Wow what a thrill to see the owl fly.. Hey you did good for what you had at the moment.

I have noticed on all the D2X shots, the tone and colors are really great. Wow

Buck fever..

Ron...

I have to admit...I got buck fever!

I had the camera set on FOCUS and let me tell you...it really takes time to fire them off when you have it set like that!

OMG...

Jim. Wow. Fabulous.

I guess it's fair to say you're happy with the 2X now, hunh? :)

If those are the shots you get with the WRONG settings, I can't wait to see the others...

WOW! Fabulous shots, Jim. I guess you'll keep your new toy now? It works OK? (I hope so because I just picked one up at the local camera store today.)

Where were you when you took these shots? Did you have any idea that an owl would fly directly at you with the sun just right and with a clear blue sky as BG? What were you really going out to shoot? Fess up now...

I love Owl's.

I haven't seen one in the wild since I was about 12.

Cool!

Jim,

WOW is putting it mildly :)

Between the seals and this owl I'm thinking you're a master photographer. These are wonderful shots and I am very impressed with your luck and your talent.

Very impressive Jim. Since I know it wasn't the shooter, the X must be one heck of a cam.... :lol:

Seriously, these are an extremely impressive indication of what this cam can do.

To Everyone..

A) Thanks,

B) I had no clue that this beauty would present itself to me in perfect light against a blue sky. I litterally had to jump out of the car...brace myself and make the shots.

C) If I had had time to prepare, I would have been in AFC / Dynamis / Center Area / Focus + Frame Rate for release.

Jim

We all get lucky once in a while folks!
