What a treat! We made a trip to Stanwood, WA and saw not one, but 2 kinds of owls; a short-eared owl and a barn owl.
Fun to take pics in the beautiful misty morning fog too. Now I just have to work on keeping a more steady hand and using a tripod instead of a monopod. I'm always torn about this as I like to move around so the monopod is great for that. But when the light is low and I'm using my larger lens, I think the tripod would result in sharper images. Next time!
