D700, 300 2.8 AFS-II with TC1.7EII

A little fuzzy but not bad considering the distance and crop.

We were awakened the other morning to the sounds of crows. Turns out a murder of crows was trying to attack this barred owl until we intervened. I tried to get a shot of it but it kept flying further away into the forest. A while later while sitting at the breakfast table, I spied the owl fly right to this perch overlooking the stream by our home. Grabbed the camera and managed to get a few decent shots.
