Early morning owl...and tech question

Mar 8, 2009
florida's east coast
Shot this guy in very low light, just at sunrise in thick woods with big oaks overhead. Definately seems "hazy" especially at his tail. Shot with a D-60, 70-300 VR. I later checked, auto setting, no flash. About 40 % cropped btw. Any suggestions for settings when I see him again in the same place? (He's there often.)

Just sitting in a tree like that you could lower the shutter speed, no need for 1/320th, that would allow you to lower the ISO which should help you get a sharper photo. I would also go to 300mm on my 70-300 an not have to crop as much.

Even so, nice capture, he looks like he's grumpy in the morning. :)
