scanner test

Calvin is home sick today, one of those not-so-pretty stomach bugs, so while he was resting and Mr. Attitude was playing video games I decided to try setting up the scanner. We've had it for a few years but it's been in storage since the last move. As always, it was a longer job than anticipated, but here's the initial test:

This is a barred owl that came to visit at another place we called home for a while. This owl perched in the same tree, same branch, on and off for about two weeks in late February or early March, allowing me to set up the tripod and telephoto lens for a nice portrait.

Nice shot, I have a pair that raise a chick or two in my yard every summer. For the most part they ignore us and we can get pretty close.
