"Great Grey. . . in the U.P. of Michigan"


Plover, US
          

I had a chance after being home for a week to go through the 100's of shots of the Grey Owl in the U.P. of Michigan. I came up with these that I thought I'd share.

Thanks for looking.

Beautiful! I'm a Yooper and hear owls in the early morning when airing my dogs. I never seem to be able to see them when I have the camera in tow.

Those are really impressive. You have a wonderful subject and did a fine job. Even with 800 ISO the detail is outstanding.

Thanks so much Larry - I find the 500P manual focus can be excellent in the sharpness area when I use it correctly!!

I'm also pleased with this lens and Kenko 1.4 teleconverter combo.

Most excellent series Al

Being a native of Michigan I'm jealous... I haven't lived there in some time but in all my years there never saw one of these magnificent birds. Beautiful detail and combination of full frame and closeups. Must have been a real treat photographing this one.

It truly was Peter . . . we went to the UP - Sault Ste Marie, to visit my son and Daughter-in Law and they were our Guides on this adventure. They are totally into the "birder" scene and had the location of this bird fairly nailed down.

Thanks for your comments.

Believe me Richard I know I'm lucky. Have to thank my son and daughter-in -law for doing the homework on this birds' location. The first and third image are just about full frame as he/she was just off the road in a wood lot. . .perhaps 30 feet away!
Thanks also for the nice comments!
