GREAT pics, and I love the snowy owl! He's totally, "Dude....I'm not showing any more than this." :lol:

Thanks, man. I just bought a waaaay too expensive lens for myself (you’re only drunk and 59 once), and yesterday was the first time trying it out. The owl was probably 75 yards away and that was too far for any chance at sharpness.  The heron was closer but I’m impressed with how well the lens handled it. For perspective, here’s a phone photo of the heron that was taken by a buddy standing next to me.

I've eyed up some of those way expensive lenses as well since we finished up paying college tuition a couple years ago -- :D -- but I haven't bit the bullet yet. Plus, I'm getting lazier about pulling out the Nikon to get the better/best results and have been relying on my mobile phone cam to capture life's little moments.

Been snagging some good results, too, after upgrading to Pixel 6 Pro in October. If I happen to have my tripod and phone clamp with me, in fact, sometimes I can get heron-on-the-rooftop levels of zoom with the P6P such as you've shared here.

Photo isn’t from the local area but I am. Drove to Watertown, NY, to see some deep snow. Fished for steelhead in single digit temps, snowshoed on Tug Hill plateau, and took some sunset pics on Lake Ontario in -18 temps. These are the drifts along the shore on Wednesday.

What a day for a hike. Nothing like having Arctic cold air in place for multiple days after a snowstorm. Can really get a chance to be out in it and enjoy before it goes to melty slush.

A couple photos I took earlier today from Tuckahoe.

Damn I need a cold 20” snowstorm badly.

Fixed.

I believe you guys will get one, too before this winter is done. I want the Mid Atlantic to go all 'New Englander' with snow!

We need to get stormtracker and mappy and Bob Chill and many others to get annihilated by heavy snow in their backyards for a change!

God putting on a show this morning lighting up the ice on the branches.

I despise ice storms now, but man....I love the morning after, when it's cleared off like this, and you get that "halo" effect on/around individual tree branches glowing in the rising sun, as you've captured here. Great shot!!
