Well done once again! I find your wildlife shots especially fascinating, excellent work!

A chap in town nearby here has on display a whole row of bird pics that he has taken. The best, IMHO, is one of a snowy owl just ready to strike a mouse on the snow. Perfectly sharp and clear - full wingspread, talons wide open, about 6 or 8" above the mouse. Wow.

He does a fair business selling framed copies.

Have you sold any of yours?

Well done Dylan, thanks.

Owls always seem to take life far too serious. :lol:

As Spike Van Cleve would have said: "He was as serious as a tree full of owls." :wink:

Great pictures, Dylan. Thanks for sharing the fruits of your photographic labor.

Amazing pictures!! I think you have answered this in the past, but what camera and lens are you using? The owl looks like it is coming right at me!!! Good job!

Glad to have the venue to share.

Burnt, that snowy owl pic sounds fantastic! Re, prints, have not really considered it, don't know how a guy would go about it. I would need some pointers.

LazyWP, I have upgraded, well not really, but my daughter Jocelyn lets me borrow her camera, Nikon D3100, and for most of the shots I had on a Nikon 70-300mm zoom. So thanks to my daughter Jocelyn.

:)

Great shots. :D


The horse pictures got me to thinking, What ever happened to that black horse that came from me. I thought Cory said something about you getting him from Ty?

BMR, I did get him from Ty. Spent a fai bit of time with him, around 80 plus rides. He was pretty solid on the ground but never did get the he77 bent for leather, devil must be after me, spook completely out of him. With my hip replacement surgery I decided he was a horse I would cut my losses on. Gave him to a gal in B.C., told her the whole deal, she was convinced she and her partner could deal with him. Have not heard anything recently.

He was big boy. That's the trouble with too many horses and too much other stuff that need looking after,they don't get handled enough when they are younger. He need a job everyday like at a PFRA, I thought Ty would have had lots of miles on him.

BMR, I agree. Unfortunetly Ty fovored the buckskin he was only on the black once I think. Then he was ponying the black horse saddled and a cinch broke.......quite a run away I heard. So in the end a bit of a handicap history.

Can I get a picture ? :) Just one of the many things I am eager to see and get pictures of, in your back yard. Did you get an e-mail from me last week?

Great pictures! Keep them coming. Funny thing about getting prints made. My wife wants to put three framed pictures in our room for a headboard. I recommended head shots of three of our herd sires. She wasn't as amused as I was.
