Think Positive About No Snow!
Well there is an upside to no snow. Snow owls are more easily seen. I had been bombing up and down some of my usual haunts. I spotted this guy, and was able to pop a couple of frames off, before he got out of range. I really wish I had some longer glass I would have been able to spend more time with birds like this one.
While I'm not unhappy with my 100-400, a 400 f/2.8 would make it so I could use my teleconverters and get little more reach. Ideally a 600 f/4, or even a 800 f/5.6 would be cool. This was cropped out of a shot at 400mm. I was maybe 10m from him and managed to get this frame just as he had enough of me a headed for some peace and quiet.
More Later ....
