Wow! Getting lucky and it's only May!

Wife and I are enjoying a drink in the backyard when we hear a couple of robins creating a ruckus. But one is flying at 90mph thru our spruce, then turning around and flying back thru the spruce... Something is bothering the robins.

Now it's getting dark and we can't see much but we see a silhouette moving around in the tree. Finally, I'm able to lock onto it, and this is what I see:



Another first! In my backyard! An owl captured with the trusty SX50. It's at 1600 ISO and a 1/4 sec exposure. I did shoot with flash but I'll post that later. Eastern Screech Owl (Otus asio).

Nice job! Tricky capture in low light. Great camera. I use mine more often than I use my 50D. Takes great movies, too. Wish it had external mic options, though. A couple years ago I shot a vid with it from the comfort of my deck of a barred owl playing around in my birdbath, in broad daylight: [www.youtube.com]

Owls are cool.

Sweet! I had never seen an owl in the wild till a couple of years ago. I have only heard Screech owls on Summer nights in my neighborhood so this was a treat!
