    Default Short-eared Owls

    The Shot-eared Owls have returned so I spent a couple of days in the salt marsh. I really wanted to get better shots before posting a set, but it looks like rain for an entire week!

    The perch shot is a pretty big crop. :( My ninja skills failed me! It's these types of targets that start me pricing out a 500 and 1.4x!









    Thanks for lookin!

    I am envious. I could never get that sort of shot with my little camera! I love the last one.

    very nice work!

    Michael, you'll find them at the foot of 72nd Street, Boundary Bay. You can be lazy and shoot from the dike or be a little more adventurous and wander into the salt marsh. If you decide to hit the marsh, watch your step!

    haha, these guys like the morning and afternoon light, but once in awhile they'll even come out midday! :P
