Default Burrowing Owls

Mindy and I recently attended a Burrowing Owl photography workshop in Lubbock. I wanted to share a few of my favorites.

Very nice series David. I know y'all had a great time. Who works at a workshop? Y'all or the owls or both?

I love owl photos. They sure do have long legs.

Yeah, kind of hard to call this work! Maybe they should rename it Burrowing Owl Photography Playshop.

Thank you! These were all taken with a Canon 1DX2 and with a Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Contemporary. Pretty much everything was shot at 600mm focal length and cropped in Lr.

We have the Tamron too. Actually, we had two of them at one time. Sold one and the other is our backup. Both of them had to go in for warranty repair with AF issues. I have friends who have the Tamron and have had great luck with them, but my experience wasn't so great. One cool thing about the Sigma is you can update firmware using the docking station (sold separately). If Tamron needs a firmware update, it has to be shipped back to the factory. Which generally only happens when they are sent in for warranty repair as ours were. Both companies are Japanese owned, but Sigma assembles their lenses in their own factory in Japan and Tamron outsources the assembly of some their lenses (the 150-600 being among them) to a company in China. Just some food for thought.

Comical little critters. Had to watch closely when I was shooting P-dogs up in the panhandle south of Stratford. At 400 yds they look almost like a P-dog and are about the same size.
I saw a couple run over and grab the remains of an exploded P-dog and run back to it's borrow which are old P-dog holes. We could walk almost up to them before they did the dive.
