Got lucky this morning when my wife spotted this owl on our morning walk. He was just sitting and sunning himself. I was carrying my Oly EM-5Mk2 with the oly 14-150 II, shot at 150 mm, f5.6 . About 75 feet away in bright sunlight. The lens is surprisingly good, and nearly the same IQ as the 40-150 2.8 Pro,much lighter and a great walk-a-bout lens. I'm liking the m4/3 system more as I use the gear. John

Thanks for the correction, you are 100 percent correct. I have never seen a barred owl in our area.

Thanks, it was quite a thrill to see it, just dozing there in the sun. I hope there is a nest nearby.

i'd say that was a very productive and fun walk, jbruce...that's a gorgeous shot of a beautiful creature!

We live along a little swampy river so have quite a few barred owls in our area and have heard several great horned, but would love to see a great grey, Bruce!

Thanks for looking, I'm still experimenting with the m4/3 format, and it is proving to be very interesting thus far.

Actually this barred owl was close to a "swampy little river", as well. This is the first time I recall of ever seeing this particular species.
