Great Horned Owl

Nikon D4 600F4 with 1.7 TC @F8 1/1250 ISO 1000 +.67EC

I am usually not a fan of using Teleconvertors on lens as it normally softens the image.  I did not have much choice tonight as I did not want to disturb this owl and it was all open ground between it and me and a stalk was pretty much out of the question.  I switched to using Auto ISO with ISO200 as minimum and ISO 10,000 as maximum with threshold shutter speed of 1/1250s. 

Until next time
