Congratulations to RobAmy for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 10 votes - View Previous Winners


What a trip I had seeing this beautiful owl. I used the Canon R5 with the RF 400mm f2.8 and it performed beautifully. Mostly shot at f2.8 for the entire trip. I put a few up, hopefully not too many. Enjoy

Masterfully captured and presented images, Rob! I enjoy all of them. I wish you would have numbered them for an easier identification.

Superb set Rob. As I scrolled through the photos, there was a group where the eye contact was intent and I felt like I was being hunted! It appears you have adapted well to mirrorless.

Terrific set of photos!
The owl gave you a lot of great perched and in-flight poses, and the settings were all excellent.
A very productive trip.

Rob these shots simply stunning. I have a real soft spot for the owls. I have never seen a Great Grey however in the wild. I followed a family of Great Horned this year from the birth of three little ones right up today. I got a chance to see a couple of Great Greys at a famous owl rehabilitation facility here in Ontario a month ago. But nothing like these shots in the wild. You are a real lucky guy besides an excellent wildlife photographer. Can't wait until I get deliver of my new RF 600 F4 shortly to try out the the owls around here. They are all great shots

Not too many for me. Enjoyed every one of them as I've never seen this bird. What a great opportunity and you knocked it out of the park. Fantastic in every way ! Easy vote
