That is a great Great Gray Owl, Brute!

What a beautiful bird Ovind, never see anything quite like that.
And thank you - I hadn't considered VR and AF.
Thanks, Colin. I was rather pleased when I got those tail feathers too, considering that all I could see with my eyes, if I was lucky, was a fast moving dot in the sky - the difficulty of locating and spotting it makes it a bit "mysterious". I have always from my early days back in Norway been fascinated with that courtship display, but never got the view of it that my D500 with 300PF+TC-14E gave me now. Here is a link to a YouTube clip were someone recorded that sound: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ImGcEaQ7As4&ab_channel=Kepe

Excellent shot Nasos.

Thank you :)
No sharpening just a color preset in Lightroom
This is much  better than previous Tamron and is the lens with the best fit on my 1.4x Kenko teleconverter  ;)
