p.1 #1 · End of the year Snowies with Tim (8)


Tim was so gracious to invite me along with him on Sunday. I missed the snowy owls in 2012 or so I thought and was excited when I heard they had returned again this year. I put them on my "must do" list as the reports of owls started to trickle in. Our first sighting was while we were still an hour out from our expected starting point. I asked Tim, "Why didn't you stop?" "He was too close to the white line!" The white line on the highway!!

I found if you sneak your card into the second slot of Tim's camera and then late in the day tell him you have run out of memory space and ask if you can borrow his second card you can score some great images!! Just kidding.

Thank-you Tim for your graciousness yesterday and helping me fulfill my snowy owl bucket list. Just so everyone knows, our walking day started at 9 AM and we returned to the truck for the drive home at 5 PM, a long day filled with memories.

Happy New Year!!

-Doug

Here's another tip. Ask Tim how his exposures are right when the owl is about to leap out of the tree. While you are mashing down on your shutter Tim will be chimping away!!

#1






#2






#3






#4






#5 'nother flying shot






#6 A reminder to stretch before or after exercise






#7 All shook up






#8 Tim, thanks for keeping out till the sweet evening light!

Those are awesome. I am jealous. getting great exposures of an all white bird can be tough. I hope to get pics like these with my new 1d4 whenI figure it out.

Great series! It's so tough to get these guys on a natural perch, and you've managed that with awesome lighting as well. #2 is a killer shot!

Cheers,

These look great Doug. 2, 7 and 8 are my picks.

Was Tim chimping when you took the second?

Worth the wait. You guys keep coming up with these wonderful images. I like the last one; I think I've seen it before. But #2 is the real prize. Fine work. Don

One nice day in the great Pacific NW and you took advantage of it in spades. Gorgeous shots of spectacular birds and you finished off in some really sweet light. Beauties all!

Ah heck these are soooo darn good we don't even need to see Tim's now

The shots and the thought of the outing put a childish grin on my face
