Owls

It must be springtime as the Burrowing Owls are Back in town. The last week I have been out looking for the returning Burrowing owls here in Cedar City. I have found one and her are a few shots of him.

They do like standing on one foot.

These little Owls are challenging to photograph but are worth the work. All these shots are taken with the Canon 5d mkiv with the 500mm F4 L is ii and a 1.4 teleconverter for a focal length of 700mm. I used a shutter speed of 1/800 - 1/1250 sec F5.6 -F11 ISO between 125-400.I continue to be impressed with the new 5d mkiv  for wildlife and landscape photography. The detail I am getting is great and the low light performance is amazing. Another thing I have been busy setting up permits in the Grand Staircase to conduct a few night workshops As soon as I get the permits I will be announcing the info here first.
