You can't take a photo of this, it's already gone.

This week I have been mostly... sleepy

I have been mostly playing with my new Canon 5D Mk II

I'm currently reading... White Gold Wielder, Stephen Donaldson

I am mostly listening to... Muse

I am currently... Writing a paper

When I should be... Working harder

I am most looking forward to... The Muse concert on Thursday :)

This weekend I am... probably cooking an Easter dinner for everyone.

The website for my lab

My brothers website

An amazingly good program that can recover lost/deleted photos

Edit: if I couldn't have Pecker as the title for my previous photos, I thought I'd change the title of this one :)

Beautiful shots. The owl looks almost other-wordly in the shot. The 5th photo is exquisite.

The B&W; is very atmospheric. Fabulous bird and must be great to see it in flight

Wow - where'd you see this? Was it wild or a captive bird?

Thanks guys :) I was happy with how these came out, especially as it's not normally clear enough to see all the way to Mount Baker (in Washington State).

Minkey; it was fantastic actually. We also saw a falcon in flight too; very impressive.

Crickson; this was at the top of Grouse Mountain. It's a captive bird (they have a 'birds in flight' demo). It was reared there though, so it was flying around out in the open. Incidentally, I don't even think that type of owl is native to BC. The Jay in the last set of photos was taken in the wild though.
