Amazing!! Especially "Woooooo you lookin' at??", but also those close cropped ones coming straight at the camera.

The first one is a keeper! Looks like a great combo.

thanks everybody

I almost learned the lesson the hard way, well... let's just say, I was about to leave because I wasn't seeing anything interesting, but I stayed and this guy came out and was very active, actually there were THREE of them and I got quite the show! I got more owls in flight shots than I've ever had. It was a bonus when the sun peaked out around that time, which gave me more light. So the lesson was... HAVE PATIENCE when it comes to birding!

I feel bad for a couple other photographers that left just prior

as much as I love shooting birds with my a9, I'm gonna start giving the a7R4 a chance... simply because of the 61MP, the ability to crop a ton and still have a decent amount of MP left is a HUGE plus!

These are great shots!

It's really helpful to see them for myself because after twenty years on A-mount I'm on the verge of switching to E-mount, and my plan is to go for this exact camera/lens (+TC) combination. Unfortunately for me the A7R4 is going to be stretching my budget too far and I'm going to only manage to afford a well-used A9.

Short-eared Owl is one of my favourite birds and definitely a species I would hope to be photographing too (I unfortunately missed them this last weekend at a usually very reliable spot for them near London, but they usually stay for the winter). At the moment I'm using an A77II with a Sigma 500mm f/4.5 which is decent enough but the Sigma TC is pretty poor, both in focusing and IQ.
A77II, 16-50/2.8, 85/1.4 G RS, 24/2.8 RS, Hartblei SR 35/2.8, ∑500/4.5, ∑70-200/2.8, ∑150/2.8,

shutter speed a bit too slow because just before this, I was taking a picture of another bird that was just sitting

Thanks

I meant to point out the harrier changed direction on a dime because it saw a little bird. I think it was getting late and hadn't found anything mice to eat and may have been tempted to go after the little bird
