Here are a couple of snowy owl shoots taken in a field off of Eagleson Road in Ottawa.  Snowy Owl's are beautiful to see early in the morning searching for food.  These photographs where take with my Canon 7D Mark II camera and a 400 mm lens.  The shutter speed was set to 1/400 second, the aperture was set to F6.3 and the ISO was set at 200.

Wood Duck Swimming

After a summer of looking for this guy, I finally found him swimming at Mud Lake in Ottawa.  The wood duck is one of the most colourful ducks native to this area.  This is the male wood duck with his bright colours.  I took this photography with my Canon 7D camera and a 400 mm lens.  The shutter speed was set to 1/800 second, the aperture was set to f5.6 and the ISO was set to 2000 to capture this low light photo.

Osprey in Flight!

After a long summer of photographing a family of osprey on the banks of the Rideau River, I managed to capture this shot of an osprey soaring through the air with his wings spread wide and his piercing yellow eyes fixated on his target.  The osprey's beautiful colouring on his wings, head and body are highlighted in the bright blue sky.  This photography was taken with my Canon 7D camera and a 400 mm telephoto lens.  The aperture was set to f6.3 , ISO was set to 200 and the shutter speed was set at 1/1600 second to freeze the motion of the wings.
