It ain't an owl during blue hour, but I still am quite pleased with this one:

Ken, what a great shot of that punk duck in full flight. Love the backlit wing and the clean background.

I can't match the superb pictures in this section as I have neither the skill or equipment. For what it's worth, here's my contribution. A picture of what I believe is a Lesser Black-Backed Gull at Seaham, England. Taken with an A200 and the Sony SAL75-300.

Nothing wrong with that picture, Ian. A worthy one for this thread IMHO. You show it is not necessary to have the latest and greatest gear to get a good picture!

I agree with Addy (apart from the fact that I see a few dust bunnies    )

Ian, if you had a RAW file for that shot, you'd be impressed with how much more detail you can cajole out of it and get better saturation and contrast. Especially if you shot it f/8-f/11.
For me, sunny shots pretty much mean f/8 to f/11 to get optimal sharpness. Even the Sony 75-300 on an A200 can be made to perform well and get a good pic.
