It was the best opportunity I've had for the full-frame 'great gray flying straight at me' shot that I've been dreaming of. And I blew it.  The eyes are out of focus; for some reason I had the tail feathers in focus... Dumbass.  Live and learn...  In under three seconds (according to my camera) he went from sitting on his perch to flying straight at me to being gone behind me.  I shot 18 frames in that three seconds. Six of them were in focus (but not the money-shot). [simage=875,max,n,center,]

It wasn't a total loss though, this one turned out pretty sweet.  Probably my best owl-in-flight shot yet!
