    I would have thought we'd have a thread for wild animals by now, but I couldn't find one. We already have threads for birds, reptiles, insects and rodents - let's not take away from those threads. This one is for everything else that lives outdoors. I would also like to ask that you try to remember to mention at least the lens used. We have a lot of people here interested in wildlife photography, and this will help answer many of their questions.

    I don't have much, but I'll start you off with one:

    The present.
    Barred Owl?

    I normally do not shoot a lot of wildlife. Last night at dusk however, this fellow showed up on a tree at the edge of my property. To even get a "reasonable" shot of him I had to shoot as ISO 12800, F/5.6, 1/80th. This is with the Panny 100-300 on an EM-5 with the digital doubler engaged... so 600mm or 1200mm equivilent as you prefer. Connecticut woodlands so pretty sure this is a Barred Owl... I got his attention with a very little noise... he looked right at me...

    Just happened to take these yesterday

    Came upon a herd of Bighorn Sheep working a salt lick on the side of a mountain road.
    They seemed unwilling to leave their treat and allowed me to get fairly close.

    Nice shot. Definitely a Barred Owl.

    I don't see it, but the resizing doesn't help. The head and ears look sharper to me than the rear leg.

    My travels this year gave me some decent wildlife shots. All were take with the Pan 100-300 mm handheld, on either my G3 or G5.

    This one was an accident, but I liked it. I've posted my in focus bears in other threads.

    OMD E-M5 and M.Zuiko ED 75-300mm ƒ4.8-6.7 II

    The IBIS in the OMD’s is amazing, this photo was taken handheld from a moving (slowly drifting right to left of otter) kayak, while twisting body as far as possible to the right, at an effective 600mm, with a shutter speed of 1/320.
