Barred Owls always present a problem at Circle B Bar Reserve. Since they are most active as the sun is setting it usually calls for very high ISO's. Since I don't use a tripod any longer handholding was a must. My friend Prith challenged me to lower my shutter to gain a lower ISO so I lowered it to 1/400. He laughed. "No Mike, lower it to 1/100" What? At 600mm handheld? So I tried it and couldn't believe the results. The image stabilization combo of this body and lens is amazing. To our eye this owl was in complete silhouette but the camera settings brought it back. Now if you want to pixel peep and can tear this image apart, but for my purposes I was amazed.
Sony A9II w/200-600 G
1/100 @ f6.3 @ 3200 ISO 600mm handheld with no support

Hello my amazing Flickr friends !
Today is a yellow day at Color my world Daily and I just got this tiny egg from China, so lets celebrate !

Just for your information (since I know that you must know that kind of very important fact) I got a dozen of tiny eggs (6 browns and 6 whites). I just wanted to show you how tiny those are , compared to a real egg. My tiny eggs are adorable my friends but very easy to lose… especially if you can’t see that well. I dropped one on the floor and it took me quite some time to find it . But I noticed that I need to vacuum very soon … it is almost an emergency situation vacuum wise ! My tiny eggs will be a perfect addition to my tiny omelets I showed you a few weeks ago … I already have so many ideas for new pictures !!

See you later my friends !! Mucho, mucho amor for you all !!

Thank you so much for all your lovely comments / favs/ general support / happy thoughts!! Stay safe and well!!
