After several days of cold feet and patience and 1 day before I had to return the X-T2 and the 100-400 lens, my wife spotted the eagle owl high in a tree looking down at us. Handheld is difficult at this angle and in the light conditions of a forest. But I managed to get some cool shots of this awesome owl.
We decided to call the owl “Theo”. Happy days. Reinhold

Shot with Fuji X-T2 and Fuji XF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR

Image 7/20 – In Love… storchs in the wetlands. I was lucky the day before. I came to a place packed with storchs. I own no long lens. So I had to go with my 18-55mm zoom hunting the fast flying birds. Used the new focus features of my X-T1 for the first time. It was fun and may be I go back on the weekend. Practice… practice… practice…

The first 6 images are already published. If you are interested… please visit my blog. Thanks in advance!

The remaining images are dedicated to Amy. I was inspired by her “birds in the air” shots. So I hope I am closing the gap between her skills shooting birds in motion a little bit. She is still master of the game! Go and check out her birdies. 🙂
