Gotfish, those are great! Owls are awesome creatures.
But, ah gots ta know, how did you get that close? Was it
telephoto lens, were you waiting where you knew they'd be....
I like taking pix of nature too, the camera takes the place of
the bow in the off season.
Good job man.

Paul...thank you!

The owl shot was from about 50 feet away, and then cropped a little in Photoshop. Yes, I do know where to look for her, and she's been there in the same general area in the winters for a while. Someone told me about it in confidence last year, so I was able to see an owl for my first time. The area where she's in has hills, so I'm able to climb up a hill to get a little more on her level. The lens is a 400mm Canon, which (when mounted to a typical Digital SLR) equates to 640mm. I won't say where she lives, other than that it's on the south side of Chicago in the city. Thanks for the comments.
