    This owl was part of a raptor demo at a renaissance fair. Shooting was tough, the owl was in the shade with sunlit BG. AF was a little slow to catch up when it took off, so it's not quite as sharp as I'd like.

  2. Love the wing blur- clone that post out and you've got a cool poster!
     
  3. You were reading my mind Tom. I hope you do not mind me playing a bit with your image Baywing. If so, I am sorry. It is a very cool subject and action!! I am on my laptop at work and so not as good as I would have done at home, but anyway, you get the idea. Also, much better if you work with the original.

    I have something like that in mind, but just don't have the time to do justice right now.
