 Northern Hawk Owl

Northern Hawk Owl

Spokane Co WA

This was taken at around 350 yards, so a huge crop and not a very good image. I stacked a 2X and 1.4 Converters so that made it 2184mm. Thanks to Patrick & Jessica
McKann for finding the Owl and Tim O'Brien for posting the location.

Canon EOS 1D Mark IV ,Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS USM
1/500s f/8.0 at 1200.0mm iso800 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

thanks for intro to owl, still a pleasant portrait - and is that some sort of record for focal length?!

What a pretty owl!!!! He seems to be small compared to the size of the tree branches.
