    30D, 300/4L + 1.4x, ISO400, f/5.6, 1/100th, hand held with flash and beamer

    Now, where is the little spider?

    Dave's nerves may get the better of him for the owl alone.

    Hi my first attempt to post an image on the forum, so hopefully it works. Taken 3.11.11 near Broke in the NSW Hunter Valley. I used a Canon40D,Canon300mmf4 lens with a 1.4 TC 1/250 @f8 ISO320 handheld??. Image has been cropped a bit, processed for light, contrast, colour and selectively sharpened and denoised in CS3. I wont attempt to give a scientific name for this bird after reading much about hybridisation within this group. regards to all Trevor
