Asian Brown Wood Owl, A Series

While trying to get a good Wood Owl portrait this bird was flying and posing in many different positions. I certainly was not going to just stand around and wait for the perfect head shot.

I have always had better luck shooting a shorter lens, and not a big 150-500/600 zoom in these scenes. In previous sessions I noticed most everything was shot at or around 300 mm.

This was the first serious work I had done with the shorter Tamron 18-400 mm. As expected grabbing a fast focus was difficult, Sigma is much better. I felt the really broad focal range offered with this lens made up for it since this was not wide open in flight work.
