"The wailing owl Screams solitary to the mournful moon."
~ David Mallet
The Zoo entrance fee is relatively cheap around here. Something on the order of 7$ CDN which is a steal & well worth it to shoot, err, photograph a bird or two!
The 70-200mm was supported on the monopod and this was the best balance of lower ISO, f-stop and speed to get something sharp. In hindsight I should have tried the strobe on manual.
