    Congratulations on retirement conropl (Pat?)! Now we just need to get past the “mud and slush” season in Michigan.

    And even “wow” seems a pale word for Jonathan’ owl shots.

    Thanks. I haven't regretted it at all. Now I just need to get the camera out again.

    The slush is mostly gone, but the mud lingers on. Although, I did see my first Robin of the season... that is always a good sign of spring. For me, that has always been a better predictor than that rodent in Pennsylvania.

    Impressive set of photos for sure. I'm especially impressed with the forth photo when the owl was clearly behind the tree (white birch?) and yet stayed in focus. Amazing that you were able to lock onto that moving owl with that back round.

    It's definitely very good! To be fair though, the owl is moving sideways across the frame, so as long as the camera doesn't get distracted by the obstructions, it doesn't have to make a lot of adjustment to stay locked on. It might have been a completely different matter if the owl was flying towards me. Anyhow, this is still a giant leap forwards, which is very nice to see.
